I hear omegas are better for gaming then benchmarking ?

stability and image quality are his forte. When you increase the image quality, that usually lowers performance by a little

except the 3.2s which were quite an improvement over th ATI drivers for both gaming and benching

Can I just upgrade from 3.2 omegas to these new ones, or do I have to re-install?

Its always best to uninstall any previous drivers before installing new ones.

1) Unintstall old drivers
2) Reboot
3) Install new drivers
4) Reboot
5) Enjoy!

Follow those steps and you can avoid a lot of problems

Ok...i still failed to crack the 4k mark... Only got 39** from an initial 3639... But i guess a little o/c will fix that
But hey shader speeds reported in 3d01 improved tremendously. My nature fps jumped from 5* to 71
