ATI Catalyst Advice

Hi, here I am again looking for some expert advice..First my problem...having replaced a 9700 graphic card with 9800xt and downloading latest drivers 4.1 & 4.2 game keeps crashing to desk top and 800x600, reporting error. This however does not happen with the supplied driver 3.8 that seems very stable. I am happy to use 3.8 but question is will I be missing out on any performance enhancements with the latest drivers? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I am no exspert however my wife plays alot of games,we have found that updated drivers do not work with all games?? She does change the screen res on some games,cowever she has come to the conclusion Games+card drivers+win xp don't always work together, it may be worth looking on microsoft website to see if there is a fix for the problem you never know.If all fail if the old drivers work use them.

Yes at the moment I have gone back to the old drivers and coming to the conclusion that downloading the latest drivers is not always for the best (In my case anyway). I also went onto windows update and there was a an update for 3.8 but when downloaded things began to freeze, so I have left alone. Many thanks.
