Not sure what you mean by Best ones.

But
start > computer > rightclick: manage > system tools > Device Manager > display adapters > your video card, right click it > properties > drivers

Aka... MSI afterburner

then again, it would be smart if you have a MSI card to use MSI driver/software

Other than that AMD CCC comes with proper software/drivers

I usually just bring up CCC, right click on desktop -> Catalyst Control Center -> Information -> Software:
571

If you use MSI Afterburner (good ocing/monitoring tool) you can get the info from the top:
700

Currently I'm using the 12.2 pre-certified but since the latest one just came out 12.2 WHQL you can try those.
The only game I'm currently playing is Kingdoms of Amalur and its been fine so far.

What are you trying to play that is giving a 6970 trouble? There isn't much out there.

Crysis 30-50 fps

Crysis 2 (with dx11 and hd textures) 25-35 fps

Saints Row the Third 40fps

Battlefield 3 35-60 fps, can get very choppy.

Metro 2033 35-50 fps in closed spaces

Alan Wake 35-60 fps

ARMA 2 like 20-40fps

Skyrim 30-60fps sometimes 20s in town.

Those are the games that i like to play often. I just thought on this rig i would be able to pull a smooth 60fps with all these things maxed. Again maybe not, Im pretty new to this stuff. Any honestly opinions would be appreciated, either "yer their is something wrong there" or "stop being a wanker their is no way you can run those games maxed" ahaha.

Ps. really enjoying the forum guys, very helpfull people. thumb.gif

Before my 6970 died I used to get 50-60 fps on skyrim with a ton of texture mods and shadows on high. It used to drop down but never went below 40.
Saints row the third used to get 50-60 fps with dips down to late 40s.
I tried ARMA 2 a few times and used to get 40-60 fps with everything maxed but never really had much activity on the screen. I imagine it would have dropped a bit as it can get quite manic.

All these results were using the stock settings in ccc except the +20% power setting and all the components in my sig rig.
