Does anyone know what the latest and greatest drivers are for the ATI Radeon 9800XT? I checked ATI's site and it lists 5.8, but when I check my driver properties, it states I have 6.1 something or other. Perhaps this is an Omega driver (6.1)?
Input much appreciated!

The numbers your looking at arnt the same as the catalyst ones. Check your C:\ATI\SUPPORT folder and see what set you installed latest, unless you remove your install files after use.. Im having sort of a braincrash, cant think of anywhere to check the correct driver numbers. Catalyst 5.8 is the latest release though. As for best drivers the only unofficial good alternative is omega.

Thats the version of the basic driver files itself, its not the same as the Catalyst version, I have Catalyst 5.7 and it say under properties that i have 6.14xxxxect.. Do you have the Catalyst Control Center? If you do, you can find out from there what driver you have. Just open up Control Center, Click on the Information Center tab, and it should tell you what version of Catalyst you have. Just download the new Catalyst 5.8 or the newest Omega Drivers and you will be good.
