Default Re: New Radeon X800 gto is APALLING.

They're drivers that have been very, very well modified by gamers, programmers to get the best out of ATI and Nvidia cards.

Those drivers are awful. All of my card information has vanished and everything is slow as hell. Getting rid of them at once.

I use the Omega Drivers. They're really neat. I personally don't see a difference between the Catalyst Drivers and the Omega drivers, I just like not being at 'default' settings.

Anywho, go here and download ATI Catalyst 6.1

Those should greatly improve your Radeon X800GTO by a good amount. Also, how is your driver date 4/01/06. It's not April yet...

Those drivers are created for gamers by gamers, they improve most cards overall performance by 10%.

Hmmm wait a min, I hope you uninstalled the old drivers first and rebooted before installing the Omega drivers.

Well, I didn't uninstall the older drivers but, of course, I rebooted. However, does Coolbits 2.0, RivaTuner, etc. work with these drivers?
