    I dunno, but I can tell you right now that a Radeon 9600 SE won't be as good as a Radeon 9600 Pro. The RAM clock speeds suck. That's why it benchmarks badly.

    Go to the ATI site and download the catalyst 5.8 drivers. These will work with all Radeon series cards.

    RJARRRPCGP, he was asking for drivers, not whether or not a PRO was a better card. Please restrict your replies to relevent aspects in order to provide assistance as requested.

    The 5.8 suite is quite new and optimized for older cards such as yours. I'd recommend it over older 3rd party drivers at this time.

    Third party drivers may offer slight performance or quality increases over the stock ATI drivers, though it's nothing huge. Sticking with ATI's catalyst drivers should be fine.

    Drivers? I dunno. Because I only tested it with W1zzard Catalyst 4.7 or 4.4. Maybe Catalyst 3.2 also, because they were known to perform good with my Radeon 9000 Pro 64 MB, which I still have.

    I had catalyst 5.6 on my 9600se and it worked great. I tend to stay away from the latest stuff since sometimes bugs are found then they quickly make a new driver to fix that problem.
