Served 5k and counting ...
I will just say this, these drivers worked wonders for me! Gave me an average of 10 fps boost while using AA. No performance changes with AA disabled. So even though they are marked for use with the HD4k's, they work good with HD3k's also.

Well, after many drivers with my 2600XT AGP, I finally came across some from DNA that work well.

Version 8.493.0.0
Filename agp-hotfix_xp32_63478_2.exe

Everything else crashed out my games after 10-30 minutes. These ones are good for hours and hours. Had to clean out a LOT of stuff beforehand though. Uninstall utility from ATI for chipset and drivers, Driver Cleaner for all the ATI stuff, and then some Asus Codecs that were installed with CCCP.
