I've heard that the Catalyst drivers are the faster of the two (Cat and Omega)

I did pretty good with my Omega drivers, got 21400 in 3dmark01SE. These were the ones based off of the Cat 3.6's though and others have told me that the Cat's will be the quicker of the two.

Cats are a bit faster but omega's look tons better. Both are very stable, at least the 3.6's that just came out last week. Tested both with zero problems.

I use omega's and always will. Its worth it for my gameing experience..

Omega 3.5

the Omega 3.6 had a refresh rate problem for me but the Omega 3.5's have no problems that I have seen. They are a keeper, and yes the image quality is much better than the Cat's. Plus the Omega's let you soft mod your Radeon 9500 or 9700 with ease

version 2474 is the new driver which base on cat 3.6. If you go to readme to that page it will explain to you everything you need to know about that driver.
