ATI drivers are bad enough when officially released, being a beta tester for leaked ones is just crazy!

As for Microsoft, I'll just say NT4 SP2. Never, never be the first, second, third... to try out a Microsoft SP.

I put on omega's plutonium tweaked driver set yesterday (based on the 6102 catalyst driver leak) and really, absolutely LOVE these drivers! GTA3 is running sweet as can be

I also put on the sp1 build 1060 three or four days ago and haven't had a bit of trouble. System seems a bit more responsive but maybe that's just in my head :lol"

You obviously don't do home theater with your ATI card. Virtually every new driver that ATI comes out fixes or adds something and breaks something else that used to work. I can't get past the 6025 version so far without serious problems being very evident.

I hope you backed up just before that SP. And keep that backup for a while!

yeah, me and drive image 2k2 are good friends! Plus here in a few hours I'll be trying out the 1065 build. But rumor has it the official MS release will be around Aug, 1.

and no, I don't use my r8500 for home theater, just gaming on my pc.

Do you think MS will put out WinXP SP1 in retail/OEM form, to replace the old one, or will you have to download it?

I doubt Microsoft would release XP w/SP1 in retail. They will definitely release that in the Microsoft Select edition (this is the corp. edition). As for OEM, I have no idea... 50/50 may be?

betcha it will be a d/l. or if you're on 56k you will probably be able to order the disc from MS. this baby is big... 119MB. But overall feel is very smooth and overall system is even better now than with the 1060 build! No problems here with sp1 build 1065

leaked??

of course you realize that microsoft leaks these on purpose.. thats free beta testing, without having to worry about whether it causes problems or not.. they 'leak' these builds, wait to see what it screws up, then fix it.. after they have done this enough times, then they will release the final version

I stay up to date on pretty much all of my software.. but given microsofts history on leaked service packs, no way I would load it up until all of you get done fighting through the problems that are sure to exist

The 7500/VGA/DVI with Win2K and WinXP. The drivers, except for maybe the 6025 version are a joke. One of my favorite "features" is the part where the ATI advanced properties panels of the display panel lose their OK, Cancel, Accept buttons when you move the panel. Even with the 6025 version, trying to convince the system which monitor is my primary and having it stay that way after a reboot is quite a challenge.

PVR'ing isn't much of a challenge for even ATI, especially if you do it on one display. Try running a computer monitor on one port and a projector or RPTV on the other port while having the DVD playing constraint of the overlay being able to be on only one display at a time. And consider the performance problems that result with even ATI's own player depending on version (again, older is better - 7.5 works, 7.6 and 7.7 stutter), especially if you have both displays simply active at the same time!

If this card did not give such a good picture when you finally figure out the right combination of drivers and player software I would never touch it. I really miss my Elsa GeForce2, but the picture wasn't quite as good and it wasn't a twinhead.

And of course there's always the broken gamma of the 8500 which makes that card absolutely unusable for home theater purposes...

and screwed up service pack could lead to a quick format
