    what is the difference between the driver downloads for the raedeon
    cards? one is 26 MB and the other 42MB...the only difference i can see
    is the 42 MB download has a CATALYST Control Panel app included. what
    is that? is it worth the extra space and does it have any cool
    features or is it just window dressing?

    I think 42mb version is multi-language version.
    Yeah, check out control panel - there are many neat things in there.

    One is the new Control Center that requires .net framework to install. The
    other is the classic ATI control panel. I'm not sure adopting the new
    control center at this point is a good idea.. some problems need to be
    worked out.

    No problems here, and the nice thing about the Control Centre is that it
    allows you to change your video profile for various games from the System
    Tray. Right click, two clicks and you're good to go.
