    I'm just glad they fixed the crippling memory leak in Borderlands under Win7!

    I'm more interested to if they are going to introduce a 3d option much like Nvidia even if it's only for blu ray.

    The question is, have they fixed the 120hz problem with the samsung 2233rz?

    I noticed that as well. I think it came in with the 10.7 or 10.6 drivers. My old 4770 could mostly get a fairly steady 60fps with a few drops to 45-50 on max settings, but when I upgraded to a 5850 earlier this month (10.7) I was only getting 25fps with regular drops to 15. Turning dynamic shadows off got 60fps, but didn't quite look right after being used to them. After an hour when the memory leak got bad, it dropped to a steady 1-2fps.

    It turned out if I turned off Catalyst AI in CCC I could get an easy 60fps with no drops with everything on max. Seems like the 10.8s should fix it all but I can't check right now.

    Since when have drivers had to support specific monitors individually? :\

    Have these new drivers fixed the coloured screen crashes with vertical lines?

    Not caused/cured by any of the drivers I'm afarid. Mine was cured by a new BIOS for the card.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Well, not specifically the samsung but any 120hz monitor on an ATi card seems to have a problem. The majority just happen to be samsung ones due to early adoption.
