I've only had this problem with 5.8 and the new 5.9 drivers. The problem is when I play games (in this case counter strike: source) i get major slowdown when people are firing (this never happened before).
Also with Dawn of war and it's new expansion Winter assault if there are too many units on the screen with high graphics on it becomes increasingly jerky (this also didn't happen before). for now i'm using 5.7 but I would like to fix this to get my games running at their full potential. It's really frustrating :tazz: please help!

I have not experienced this at all. however with Day of defeat:source you need to update to 5.9. prior to that you average 20-30 frames. after its 75-80 frames.

you could try the omega drivers (moded ati drivers) and see if they work better for you.

ok thanks i'll try that if it doesn't work though I think my problem may be my graphics card is quite old and they probably aren't designing the new drivers for it because my friend has the same problem with counter strike source with 5.9 and his card is even older than mine
