Hi all


got a lovely new card, 7850 to replace my old 4870.

Have installed MSI live update, and installed the vital drivers ie Intel one and their own update.

Question though whats the latest driver for my card?

My ccc says:

Driver packing version=9.012-121219a-154961C-ATI

Catalyst version=13.1

Do i need to install newer drivers?

thank you

Intel e8400 3.0(watercooled)
4GB ram
Windows Vista 64bit home premium
Sapphire 4870 512mb

Only need to update if the newer driver has something you need. For example a real problem in game play,  performance issue or crashes. Besides there are issues when installing the newer driver with Vista. So if you do look at this forum post to install the newer driver.
