I am having significant game crashes and both game tech support said my drivers are old, yet when I do the auto detect and search manually it says I have the newest drivers?  Help!  I dont want to send the card back if I dont have too.

Have you read the post on uninstalling/installing new drivers in the FAQ section?

How would that help me?  I would just be installing the same old drivers.  The drivers for other cards are updated to, like Sept and Oct, my drivers have not been updated since March,  how can that be?  I have Vista so I think I am screwed.  I guess they dont update those.  This was my first try with AMD and it seems I should have stuck with Nvidia.  They had new drivers almost monthly it seemes.

I'll take that as a no. Obviously you are doing something incorrect. Uninstall the drivers as suggested , using the AMD tool if you have Win7. Install the new drivers that you have downloaded to your computer,,that means don't use auto detect.
