    hey i was just wondering what "Tweaked" Drivers you all use? i have been using Omega for quite a while with out any problems, and 20 to 40 FPS diferance. But in the last few days it has been pretty crazy........I will be playing BF2 for a hour or so and the screen went black sound stuttered, and i woke up at a spawn point. happens a few times a night. just wondering if you guys think it could be driver related. and what drivers you use.:rockout: :respect: :rockout: :toast: ;) :eek: :confused: :D :cry: :( :ohwell: :respect:





    NOT SURE IF THIS SHOULD BE HERE OR IN THE SOFTWARE SECTION

    Personally, I use the Warcat 7.1's... they seem pretty stable and gave me a huge performance increase over the standard ATI drivers :D

    are there any "tweaked" drivers that are any better than the others? i gues if i had a decent vid card i would not have to worry about it. :D but for now i am trying to get the most out of it that i can

    Omega drivers are really good. Also NGO drivers good too. I have used both of these and they seem to work really well. ATM I am using stock ATI drivers as I have crossfire.

    "I will be playing BF2 for a hour or so and the screen went black sound stuttered, and i woke up at a spawn point. happens a few times a night. just wondering if you guys think it could be driver related."Or LSD related,..lol.
    Just try regular ATI drivers and see if it still happens.
    Hope it is not card related.

    Sounds like what happened to me last sat night.. :)

    Did you install bf2 prior to updating drivers?? If so, re-install the game that may help. Also you do have an old vcard (but a legendary one in its time). Make sure you don't have the settings turned up to high. what res are you playin it @??

    WarCats , Omegas , Ngos have almost the same tweaks so it is more about the rig you have and which driver set has optimisations that agree with it so test them all , do a bench and find out whats best for you :)

    I'm using stock 7.2's without the CCC, using Ati Tray Tools instead. Had some issues with the omega 7.1s on my machine. Wasn't 100% stable for me. They really hated GRAW for some reason.
