Definitely need to get these. I experienced the texture flickering badly in bad company 2 and the crashing in Warhead, pretty severely with my new cards.
-_- have to re-install the darn AMD drivers..again.

7970 users should not use 12.2 preview drivers because they are not supported yet.

The 12.2 preview driver page states that HD79xx users should stick to the 8.921.2 RC11 drivers.
