    I have a Radeon 8500 which is impressive for my needs. I have updated
    through several versions and now use Cat 3.7.
    It seems from the posts here that the updates are geared toward the higher
    end boards. I have not seen a great performance increase in performance
    with each update except that I now don't get the rare BSODs.
    Would you recommend continuing using updates for us older board users (or
    is it a waste of time)?

    there is some z buffer improvments, so my 7500 saw some increase in software that uses it. If it aint broke don't fix it.......i
    have not loaded the 3.8 on my 9700 machine, and i might not as there are still carry over problems from 3.7 showing up in them and
    that tells me, once again, they were rushed out and are not ready for primtime yet.
