    Need help with graphics card!

    Hey guys, I've found a new update for my Graphics Card:

    Sapphire X1550

    Update:

    Catalyst Software Suite (32 bit) English Only (V7.12)

    My friend told me that if the driver isn't secure I'll have to reinstall my OS, is this true and also...have any of you used this before, if so what feedback can you give me.

    Really important, lee.

    This is the page you need to visit for Ati driver updates. Ati usually update their drivers once a month.

    Re: Need help with graphics card!

    If it is a driver, then Vista might kick up a bit if iyt hasn't been digitally signed (but I think you can overcome that). If it is firmware, the OS shouldn't care one way or another.
