    There's a proper set up now on nzone that work with the 7900 series, seems people are getting good gains in Tomb Raider and Oblivion, just in time for the Bank Holiday :D.

    Might give them a blast, see how they compare against the tweaked 84.20's I'm running atm.

    But they also generally seem to be fast in CS:S and other games. Will get these me thinks! :)

    Tomb Raider still runs crap on my system. Not much performance increase, if any.

    Just gave the drivers a shot. A performance increase in Tomb Raider, but not much it has to be said.
