Default ATI Radeon 3200 HD Graphics

Hello i have a ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics card built into my motherboard.

The current,

Driver date: 29/08/2008

Driver version: 8.531.0.0

I've got two questions

1)
I went onto the ATI site and followed the steps to find my drive and then clicked next to look for updates, then it took me to this page- http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_ca...grated-vista32
But i'm confused on which option to pick, is it "Option 1" or "Option 2" I'm guessing Option one but now sure. (I want it to give my driver the latest updates and update my catalyst controler if needed too)

___

2)
Also my graphics card is set to,

Balance, and it has High Quality option and High Performance, i am trying to run a game so which one should i put it on to make the card work better and make me lagg less on the game i'm trying to play (America's Army 3)

This is my DXDiag- http://pastebin.com/m3091eba5

I usually just install the display driver package, without CCC. The only thing CCC is actually useful for is forcing AA in games that don't offer it.

Just download the driver, you don't need Catalyst control centre.

Yeah you will only need the driver. It will save a small amount of memory by only downloading what you need. There really is not point for CCC with onboard graphics.
