    I don't usually follow theirs either.. I'm an ATI guy, always have been, always will be.. But I'm fixing a rig for a friend and he has an Nvidia card and was wondering when the new driver was coming out.. ;) That's why I ask..

    I was looking arround for some release notes for 9.5, and Ati has yet to officially post them on the driver update page. I did however find this.
    They seem to have been delayed untill Moday, but you wont have to redownload them if you already have them.

    This was just posted today.

    It's only for the driver, not the Catalyst Control Center:

    ATI Catalyst for Vista & Windows 7
    Requires: Windows 7/Vista

    ATI Catalyst for Vista & Windows 7

    nVidia Win7 drivers!

    NVidia 185.85 are for Windows 7! I installed them last week and they work fine. Unlike ATI nVidia is on the ball and came out with the drivers already. If you can't find them do a Google search. :razz::razz::razz:

    They came out last week for Windows 7, version 185.85! They work fine. If you can't find them do a Google search. nVidia did a great job getting these out so early.

    I am also using the 185.85 drivers on my one rig that has an Nvidia gpu in it and they are working flawlessly in the RC.. :)

    ATI also has Windows 7 drivers out.. They've actually had Windows 7 drivers out since the Alpha build 6801..(mind you they were "Beta/Preview" drivers, but still they were Win 7 drivers none the less) ;) They too have been working flawlessly for me.. :)

    I finally got myself a new ATI card and just updated to the most recent Catalyst package. My computer is now complete for a few more years.
