As a few of u know im getting a Radeon9700 pro to replace my R9000 its going to my mate as his G.card is crap but he wanted me to ask is there any chance if he downloaded the R9700 drivers would it correct an issue with "scruffy" text in some games?

he knows of this due to when hes played Ut2k on my pc i know that some card manufacturers leave *small* bugs in drivers to get u to get the more expensive version where the drivers will be corrected for such as the above question.

so does anyone know if it'll work by downloading the R9700 drivers?

A quick look at the ATI site shows the drivers to be the same software (for Win98, anyway). Have a look yourself to satisfy yourself.

"i know that some card manufacturers leave *small* bugs in drivers to get u to get the more expensive version"

How do you "know" that??

You being a regular poster, you should appreciate that accurate thread descriptions are essential!

'Question!!', I mean, really!

accurate? wots that? besides get ur attention doesnt it? lol

diesse i know that small *bugs* are sometimes left in because ive nosed around drivers in the past and have found small *bugs* which are obvious but have just gone unfixed(the drivers ive looked at were last ever releases)

perhaps you'll take the good advice you've been offered by graham and try to come up with a sensible title for your thread.

What you have failed to understand is that later on other people may want to search for a thread that answers their (same) problem. They'll never be able to find yours however, because it has the meaningless title "Question!!".

The forum is all about helping other people, not just selfishly getting your own problem solved and then ********* off again "kinda like batman".

Now do you see the point? 01:19 04 Apr 2003

and, professor, you didn't get that much attention really, did you? Must be the 3gig RAM affecting the attitude!
