Windows 7: Updated ATI drivers

Updated ATI drivers

I have to rebuild my machine again.. So I am left with the old problem with ATI drivers.

The MB manufacturer still has not put any updated drivers for the chipset/video card. the ones that have are from 2009/08/14. Now I know that ATI has released many new versions since then. Am I wise to get the recent driver from ATI, or stick with a very old driver from the OEM web site??

Thanks.

Matt.

I'd say if there are new drivers available and you are starting from scratch, you should use the most up-to-date drivers that are available for Windows 7 - Graphics Drivers & Software.

Just go with the latest full Catalyst Suite directly from ATI/AMD.

I have always been conservative when it comes to drivers. I see you are using the on-board video. If the drivers from your MB site work then there is probably no need for updated drivers. I believe the newest drivers would benefit if you had a newer add in video card as ATI would be tweaking them for better performance and correcting any bugs.
