    ATI has a newer driver out, Catalyst 5.13. Visiontek only posts a link to the same driver that ATI provides so I'd always get the one from the ATI website as it may be newer, as in this case.

    Here's the link: https://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894&task=knowledge&questionID=640

    They offer two different downloads for the same driver. One is the full package and the other is just broken up into three parts for dial-up users with slow connections.

    So you'd want the: High Speed (Cable / DSL) Catalyst Control Center Package Download 1 of 1 34.2 12/21/05 Display and WDM Drivers included in this bundle
