Hi

I have just got my new radeon 9700 pro II and i am not sure what drivers and what version to install first ???

OK! do i install the driver disc first then update with the new catylist drivers 4.1?

OR! do i just put the catylist drivers in first?

Also i have just been to the gigabyte site and they have a driver too! do i install that instead of the 2.4 and the driver disc?

So all you techies out there and especially owners or the 9700 pro gigabyte card can you help?

Also do i stick to DX8.1b or just install DX9 i have heard bad things on the DX9 so need to know how to play this?

---------------------------------
NEW DRIVER! version = r9700pro_779_rc3.zip

THANK YOU................

Just use the Retail ATI drivers...and it would good to just go ahead and install them, no need to install the gigabyte drivers first...

I have DX9 and no problems, but if I were you I'd play it safe with 8.1 and then move to 9 when you've had the chance to enjoy it before taking a chance on 9.



ps When you do install DX9 play the Animusic demo. If you have kids they will love it. Mine stood there watching it and gigling for a half hour. They are 2 and 5, it may not be so entertaining for older kids tho;)
