Thank for the response.

Im on a budget

Well my monitor is only 18.5 inch Wide LED and maybe for the future will use a 22 inch Wide LED.

Anyways i have heard that ATI or Radeon driver cause more problematic?

Before buying i need more info about the latest drivers on download site because im really confuse.

Well the model is Sapphire HD 6850 1 Gig 256 bit GDDR5.

Where will i download the latest driver? Windows 7 64 bit driver.

Sapphire website?
Sapphire Technology Web Site

Or

AMD Website?
ATI Radeon


And its the Catalyst Software Suite im downloading right?

I haven't really used Cat drivers for a while now, so my personal experience is out of date. I'd have to let a current AMD user answer that.

ATI Radeon
From AMD - the card manufacturer drivers are always out of date.

Correct. The suite contains both the Catalyst Control Centre (CCC) and the Catalyst Drivers.

AMD drivers aren't so bad there just a little buggy once in a while

I can tell you little performance change from driver to driver aside you can always rollback to previous drivers

only negative thing i can say about the drivers is it caused my WEI to go down and im kinda disapointed there is no fix even though it runs fine/ even though WEI means nothing

that is the only thing i can think of other then that most of the diamond radeon cards i have used run great i still have a 5770 and a 6870 planing to upgrade to a higher card in a few weeks
