Hello.
I have recently got a new PC with a AMD X2 4400+ CPU.
I heard of drivers you have to install but when I go to AMDs site there are many listed and I do not know which one needs to be installed. I do not want to screw something up either.
I am concered because my games don't seem to be running as they should be.. PC seems to act slow at times. I know Windows and some games can have problems with X2 CPUs if there isnt proper drivers installed.
A bit off-topic too but I have a EVGA main board. Would it be a good idea to install latest drivers from their site? I have been using the ones that came with the MB on the CD.
Do you need to reformat to update these drivers?
Thank you.

Keep everything as it is and then
This is the right download. Just go to AMD's site and go to downloads and click drivers and utilities until you see this download.
AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor Driver for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 Version (exe) 1.2.2
I personallyown the X2 4400+ and I applied the patch and it works just fine.
