    Hi Guys,

    I just installed Omega Radeon 4.8 drivers. It is working fine. My question:
    MultiRes loads with Windows now. I have never needed it before. What does it do and do I need it?

    what is it... wow look its google:
    MultiRes
    MultiRes works very much like a 32-bit version of the venerable Microsoft QuickRes 16-bit applet for Windows 95, with administrative scripting facilities and extended capabilities to handle refresh rates and multiple monitors. Supported resolution and refresh rates are accessible from the command-line or from a simple menu that pops up from the system tray. An optional timed confirmation prompt – enabled by default in the program About box – ensures that any changes you make can be reversed safely, without fuss. While MultiRes - unlike EnTech’s PowerStrip - does not allow you to define new display settings, it does give you quick and easy access to the ones the driver makes available – in a simple, compact and conservative package

    Thanks Mainframeguy,

    That's what I wanted to hear, a personal opinion, not a google search.
