    nice, i had issues with 9.8 hotfix but this gives me those things + a stable driver


    and it seems threes more than one HDMI fix here - this is great news, as HDMI bugs (scaling, missing options) is a long-standing, annoying bug with ATI drivers

    Did a clean install and so far it seems to be working well. I'm retuning my systems voltages to get everything right. Very smooth and fast so far. :rockout:
