I got my radeon 64mb drr vivo today. I installed it and tried different buss speeds to get 3dMARK 2K1 to run stably, got it to run stable. Then I tried it with the Beta drivers, and my system got all messed up!!!! I removed everything buy un-installing it and then rebooted with it as a standard vga display adapter. Re-installed and my 3dmarks are all shot to hell!!! My framerates suck now!!! PLEASE HELP BEFORE I GO CRAZY!!!!!!

Get a good tweaker for the Radeon. I've always used Humus' Raid-On Tweaker. the URL is
Once you have it, clean the registry settings out, then try one of the 3dmark profiles, or tweak the registry yourself for what you want. Sometimes registry settings get messed up and will kill your performance. You can also tweak a lot out of the Radeon. I would also make a point to visit rage3d as harderclock mentioned, its a great site for Radeon owners.
