    Competition helps us all. I want ATI to do well so that nVidia has to do better etc.

    I agree

    The graphics war is better than the CPU war IMHO

    They keep getting us the better hardware with better drivers and are always chopping prices every few months because of the "competition"...good stuff! :thumb:

    Whoever decided to wage this graphics war has played right into our hands. Of course, I think we are spending more bucks on it than before.

    another bug i found was with rightness settings in the Q3 demo.

    granted, i havent tested wth the full version yet, but in the demo, when i try to raise the brightness bar, the screen goes darker instead.

    wierd.

    im running an MSI ti4200 128mb , by the way.

    Others report brightness problems as well, but I have not had that problem.

    How about posting some actual ingame results with the 40.41 drivers instead of just 3DMark2001 scores. I checked the performance of the drivers in America's Army: ArmyOps which uses the new Unreal Tournament engine. Compared to 29.42 there was a MAJOR drop in framerate. I'm talking about a decrease of 15-20fps in situations of heavy load.

    /me removes 40.41 from the system!

    That's not good news. Haven't seen any decreased frame rates using 40.41's myself.
