    Or should I just stick with the default driver? Windows Vista feels slow
    on an Athlon 64 3200+ (754) with 512 MB of RAM.

    Thank you in advance. :)

    Do bear in mind that the ATI drivers are still Beta for Vista.

    It would probably be much better if you had at least 1GB of RAM - that's
    probably your main problem. Also, Windows Vista's performance has not been
    optimized yet, so it will be slow.

    Isnt it for the 5270 version?
    It cant hurt. I installed it for my ATI card, even though Im using 5308.

  6. Yes, an upgrade in memory would be good.

    OK. I will wait until the final version. :) I will use this as a minimum
    memory requirement for testing.

    If you want to test Vista out, and you're worried about performance, you
    should wait for the April CTP, which should have some performance
    optimization.
