I assume you'll have to experiment a little?

In my opinion, just because you have the same video card as another doesn't mean the same drivers will work as well on both users. different computer components affects it like.

so the best advice i can give is test different drivers.

lost? But you did find a driver which worked best right? Try using that then. Use it for a while to see if it has long term effects. For example

I have ti 4200 128 MB.

I use drivers 56.72 and play BHD. after a while, i get errors.

I use the older one 52.16 and play bhd. i get no errors.

i don't know if the new drvier 61.something will work better or not. seems like both companies have forgotten about their old cards and the support for them. :S

LOL. Is that even true? an ATi 9700 run Doom 3 at good speeds?

Well, all I can say is, why upgrade? LOL. If the 9700 works. It works.

Anyways, if the current driver is working for you. Just stick with it. I don't know why there even is a point in looking for the best drives. They all have faults in them. So if it's working, it's working. No need to change. :)

finally found a good combination of drivers, MSI Nforce Driver disables Sideband addressing, downloaded Nvidias Nforce 424, ATI Catalyst 4.7, Direct X 9.0c, and UT2K4 3236 patch.

Seems like that is the case with alot of companies out there.

I really enjoyed my WingMan Interceptor.. no support under XP.
There were a few other items I liked as well.. NO support Under XP.. and never will be

I have a Tablet I would like to use for AutoCAD, yet XP ignores it or otherwise misplaces it on a nonexisting com port. Figure that out?..

ASUS A7N8X Deluxe PCB 2.00 w/ BIOS 1005 (cause? Dunno.. ATM)
AMD XP 2800+ @ 0.0 GHz 0MHz FSB (overheating for no appearent reason)
(2) - Corsair XMS512-3500C2 (5-2-2-2T) @ 0MHz
ATI Radeon 9700 Pro @0
Enermax 500W p/s (ok.
