Paco,What are you running, XP or Vista?.The new drivers include tons of updates Focusing mainly on Vista and the HD2900XT.Some of the updates include giving 15-20% better HDR support for HD capable games. Fixed issues for certain resolutions not being able to show running Vista.There is alot more, but given that your running a 9800, my opinion, since you wont be able to take advantage of most of the updates incorporated into this latest release,is to stick to your current driver (If it is working good for you ofcourse).If you still want to try the new even bloatier drivers,1. Unistall the drivers, with DriverCleaner + CCleaner optionally.2. Install the new Catalyst.3. RE-Install DirectX.4. Rebuild FS .CFG____Sidenote: If you really want to increase your overall performance, update your hardware, CPU,GPU,MOBO,MEM. Looking at your system-specs, just updating a driver alone, will not give you a very if all noticeable boost in performance.
