As far as the latest catalysts and driver sets(10.5-9) they weren't found to be buggy but simply lacked continued support for the older titles. In fact even the older 9.4 version people were complaining about went on without fuss here on the last build suggesting some were not rebooting between removal of the older and install of the 9.4 at the time.

You first have to select the uninstall option followed by a full system restart and then run the latest Cat. installer the second time to see the latest go on. This insures the drivers from the older version are unloaded first. When not doing just that trying to rush things on you end up with problems as a result of user error.
I agree with nighthawk alot of it is lack of proper uninstaltion of drivers but in turn i did try it the other way around it installed still no issues i guess sometimes it depends on you're build and the capatability you have with the whole make of you're machine
I've installed a newer catalyst over the older one numerous times without having any major issues with the exception of the 7.9 version seen with the card on the old build. When people were hampered with the 9.4 I simply uninstalled the 9.3 or 9.2 being the one on at the time, restarted and saw the 9.4 install without a glitch.

As for the latest 5-9 the only problem seen is simply the apparent lack of sypport for the old game titles as far as the OpenGL problem people are running into. There wasn't any display issues to note except for the old titles simply refusing to run when going to start each one up.

DX 9c is installed as well to avoid the lack of OpenGL from not having it on following each newer Cat. install but still saw the same result.

As for as the model series if not the 5xxx read the release notes when going for any newer release. That will list the model series that are supported.

The 2xxx are still seeing support showing the 4xxx is still too new not to be supported. The installation not being done correctly would be the likely cause for problems such as a protection program or other software clash occuring. This is why the advice to see the old removed completely before installing the newer latest would be the thing to insure the best results

I wonder if that will also help out any with the older titles as well. Would be interesting to find out!

With this now being seen as a patch for the 10.9 hopefully the 10.10 will see that already worked into it where you wouldn't need a second download. We'll have to see! Thanks for the heads up on that!
