    i brought my computer about 2 years ago, amd athalon 2.6 running xp.
    i have a radeon 9200 graphics card, but when playing half life 2 i was prompted to update my driver. i didnt bother at first but started to notice problems with the textures on characters. i updated to the catalyst drive http://mirror.ati.com/support/drive...prod=productsXPdriver&submit.x=15&submit.y=12
    an this seems to have made it worse. they look fine close up but from a distance they are all patchy.
    the games i have noticed it in are unreal tournament 2004, half life 2 and the sims 2.
    i read another thread suggesting omega drivers but they have made no difference.

    i cant find any other info on this card on the ati site, nor on the net so im at a loss as to where to download the right driver from, if there is one.

    any help would be great.

    The Catalyst and Omega drivers should work with pretty much any Radeon card on the planet.

    Have you updated to the latest versionof DirectX? You can download it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...20-BFBB-4799-9908-D418CDEAC197&displaylang=en

    Also go to Start -> Run -> type DXDIAG and press enter. See if the utility lists any errors. Run the Video diagnostics.

    Youmay also need to update to the latest motherboard chipset/AGP drivers. Find out what chipset you have and see if the manufacturer offers a new driver.
