I probably should have specified this as well (again, my fault) but after recently purchasing an OCZ vertex 2 I reinstalled Win 7 from scratch, as well as putting in only the most current display driver at the time for my 5770. This all happened about a month or so ago. Since it's only 120gb I've been pretty meager with how much I put on the SSD. Not to sound like an idiot (keep in mind, I game and build on the side but the main use for my PC is audio recording) but would I REALLY need to reinstall Windows 7 over a driver issue when I only installed it a couple of months ago?

Buy a GTX 560, never look back.

You definitely won't regret it.

To relate to you, I installed 11.1 about a month ago I'd say. I had very large performance decreases, display crashes, etc. I uninstalled 11.1 and then installed 10.2 and CCC wouldn't open up, etc. Instead of messing with it I decided to do a reformat of Windows 7. I did not use Driver Sweeper or any 3rd party program. All I did was run the 10.12 SETUP.exe and then use Uninstall > Install options.
Thank you for the advice, I do appreciate it. While I have a lot of programs that I don't own CD copies of and would have to redownload/reinstall on my SSD (using up how many read/writes I can do the SSD) I'd prefer to not do a reinstall of windows unless it was something incredibly major...in this case it's concerning games and this experience is affecting my next system upgrade...I suppose I worded it as an "I'm fed up and buying an Nvidia card because I hate ATI now" thread, but really I'm wanting to see if the same issues I'm having with ATI will be there if I decide to switch to Nvidia when I upgrade in the summer. It's been over 10 years since I've used an Nvidia card (it was a Pentium 3 build) so I've been a LONG standing ATI user. It's moreso that I'm looking for a card that is less maintenance concerning drivers and the like, as dumb as that sounds.

I use my computer mainly for recording purposes but I feel like if I do an upgrade to my computer or have nominally good gear in there, it shouldn't freak out like this if I'm doing routine maintenance on it....it's just beyond me how an update on a display driver can cause my gear to run worse, maybe that's just my being a clueless musician that makes me think that way....idk. Either way, I'm probably gonna give Nvidia a chance since EVERYONE at work brags on how great they are and never talk of having any issues with theirs. If its works, good, if it doesn't I still have my 5770 to fall back on if its THAT bad. I at least feel I should give Nvidia a chance though.

It's DXGKRNL.SYS driver errors

and this is the error code, snagged it from BlueScreenView:

Hmm..

Run a system file check ( run cmd admin then write in 'sfc /scannow' )

Also what about that 11.4 drivers? Tried those yet?

Well I'd think that you would get more help on the ATi forums cause your issue isn't really normal and I'm sure people would help ya out.

Anyways sorry for the snappy comment, don't know what came over me.

It can't hurt to swing both ways... I know plenty of guys in real life who swing both ways.

It's all good, misunderstandings happen on forums all the time

I must admit that I get defensive of my stuff too (moreso music stuff than computer stuff), it's just sort of an immense thing when you consider moving over after using a certain brand for so long. I've used ATI longer than I've used AMD processors, and while I have mad respect for Intels I do feel that some of the cost in that processor has to be paying for their commercials as well lol.

I'll try 11.4 CCC and see how it fairs. I can't crossfire on my board (not very well, only 1 16x slot on my board) so I'll be replacing it anyways. I do want to give Nvidia a fair shake, but we'll see how much money I have to spend when June rolls around lol.

I recommend a GTX 460/470 or GTX 560. the latter one is the latest value kid from the green team, doesn't mean it has the best value, it has the best performance of all 3 though.
I personally have never use an AMD GPU, and I have never have driver problems from nvidia.
