Hello,

I've been using Mac's most of my life.   Recently I decided to purchased a my first PC computer from Cyberpowerpc.com.  So far, I'm loving my new, fast computer. After setting up and installing antivirus, software, and some games, I  noticed that some of  the drivers for my Graphics card and display adapter appeared to be outdated.   My graphics card is:  

HIS 7950 IceQ X² Boost Clock 3GB GDDR5 PCI-E DVI/HDMI/2xMini DP (iPower)

Being that my Graphics Card is made by both HIS and AMD, I'm not sure what needs updating because both web sites have different drivers listed.

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonaiw_vista64.aspx

I've watched the videos on AMD's support page, explaning how to uninstall the old driver and then install the new driver.  But after reading through some of the posts here on the AMD forums, I'm now more confused than ever!  I don't want to incounter any problems, small or big, so to circumvent this, I was hoping that I could get some solid advice, helping me to update the right drivers.

 

Here is some software on my computer that might or might not cause problems during the unistall/install process.

  • Windows 8 64 bit.
  • AVG 2013 antivirus/firewall
  • CCleaner (registry edit/cleaner)

And here is some hardware on my system:

  • Intel core i7 3770k 3.5GHz
  • 8GB Ram
  • Gigabyte GAZ77X-UDEH Motherboard
  • Samsung 250GB SSD
  • Corsair CMPSU-850TX V2 Power Supply
  • HIS 7950 IceQ X² Boost Clock 3GB GDDR5 PCI-E DVI/HDMI/2xMini DP (iPower)
  • LG IPS LED 21" Model 22EA53T (I also installed the driver off the Disk that came with the monitor)
  • Presonus Firestudio 2626  External Firewire Audio interface

 

 

Here are some screen shots of drivers.

And finally, this is a screenshot taken from the HISDigital.com download page

If you made it down this far,  THANK YOU!   What drivers do I need and if I need more than one, what order should they be installed? 

 

 

Thanks

Rob

Just remember that driver "updates" are really driver "fixes" in most cases. The read me' on each driver set explains what has been 'fixed'. If you have no issues with your drivers...leave them alone.  Driver "updates" are a option, not a requirement. That said, if you want to 'update' them, read how to in the FAQ section of this forum.

Edit: To find the correct driver for your card, follow steps 1-5. http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx Don't use the automatic 'find'. Some people just download the driver suite and install them...without removing the old ones first...ie, install 'over' the old ones. This is the easiest method.

I've downloaded both driver install packages, one from amd and  one from HISDIGITAL.com  I'm not sure which one needs to be installed.

Don't download from HIS google AMD Drivers or just go to this link: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonaiw_vista64.aspx

Then follow these directions (for uninstall and reinstall) and you should be good: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18431335

 

You don't have to use Afterburner, but it allows for a custom fan profile which will keep your card cooler which will prolong its life.

Either use the 13.4 drivers or the beta 13.5s, they're both solid.

 

That's a solid pc, it should last you a while.
