    Has anyone noticed an improvement in gaming etc...? I just installed DirectX 9 and was jstu wondering. Did anyones 3dmarks go up or anything? Should i keep the install (meaning install it again after my next reformat)

    you wil probably not notice much improvement at the moment m8...

    will have to wait for new video card drivers that take advantage of newer/improved instruction sets...

    no one who has installed it reports higher 3dmark scores or game fps scores at the moment... BUT they all expect better things when the newer ati drivers are released for the r300 based boards :)

    in short: keep them installed.

    edit: on ati's site they have the newer cats, the 3.0's. enjoy http://www.ati.com/products/pc/catalyst/index.html
    along with all the demos, i will try them out and tell if they are any good/any improvement in 3dmarks etc...
