I've never understood why manufacturers send a driver CD with monitors...I've never used them...I've always found (at least with Windows XP and Vista, 98 and ME is a different story) that any display issues are caused by the video card drivers...As for performance, I would guess that you probably wouldn't lose any by not installing the drivers, but then again, I don't do a lot of gaming so I wouldn't really know...

yeah i wasnt sure, there wasnt really any directions explaining anything, so i have no idea what the disk even contains. I think they have all the info inside the disk, making you download it. My old monitor had a cd driver but when i played enemy territory(online game) it lagged me up.
Ill keep checking to see if anyone else has experience with this monitor...

Thanks for your reply... :)

You quite often find the CDs that come with monitors contain a proper user guide. The packaging just shows you a quick start guide.
Not that its all that difficult to use a monitor, find the power button and you're away cooking on gas.

Even Windows 98 doesn't need monitor drivers. Windows 98 makes a big deal out of finding a new monitor - no other version of Windows behaves like that, anybody would think Win98 was designed without need for a monitor.
