I've got an Acer Aspire 7551G that's got a Phenom II N970 with a built in Radeon 7400M HD, and I just "upgraded" it to Windows 8, but none of my apps that use OpenGL or Direct3D will work using the Microsoft-supplied drivers.  I tried downloading the Catalyst drivers, but those all seem to say that I need an AMD A-series APU for them to work.  Am I just out of luck with this hardware?  Should I just wipe my Windows 8 partition and go back to using Linux/Windows 7?
