    LMFAO - I have just bought new GPU , started making all these preparations , all this stuff , ... getting GPU in , nice and clean all day ... keeping it slow and steady , trying to get into admin account so it doesn't mess up my icons(screenshot's backed up but anyways) , no use (win7 doesn't double ctrl+alt+del for classic logon screen) now i get in here, everything ready to install drivers , and your thread comes up like 20 minutes before i see it and i would have used the OLD(may5) drivers if it wasn't for your thread poping up and if it wasn't for some MS annoynaces bugging me !!!

    This is serious, because right after installing drivery if you realize new ones are out this is the most nerveracking and embarrasing "sigh" moments of all, about this matter.


    ... have to re-download , but it's worth it ofcourse.

    So now we have a RC3 for this hotfix, I think it still resolves the same issues, just via an updated driver version. Also I've read it helps with single card performance issues with Brink.

    Windows 7
    Windows XP

    not exactly sure, if you play Brink it might help improve the gameplay in that.
