Hi folks,

Just wondering everyone's opinion/advice: What's the best Catalyst drivers
to use with a Radeon 9100?
(This card is really made by Sapphire, not ATi itself.) It's 128MB, 4xAGP on
XP Pro PC with 1 GB DDR RAM.

Thanks in advance!

I have the exact same card and find v4.2 to be the best. I'm a big fan of
Thief 3 which will not run with earlier Catalyst versions. The latest
Catalysts cause stuttering menu screens within the game.

Thanks, Tim!
I'm using 4.3 right now, & also had some problems with the newer versions.

The 3.7's work the best with the 8500 family....but as was pointed out, some
newer games will not run with these.

Yup, I think that's what I started out with too. As you said, some newer
games made me try newer Cats, but I eventually went back to 4.3 which seems
to be stable on my system so far...
Thanks!
