ATI x1950 Pro AGP - What is best driver version to run?

PowerColor 256mb x1950 Pro AGP video card
WinXP w/SP2
ASUS P4p800-E Deluxe MB
Pentium4 3.0Ghz @ 3.8Ghz
2 x 1GB DDR ram (fast stuff...can't remember specs)


Currently running the current Omega Drivers (1/1/08..based on Catalyst 7.12) and ATI tools for auto-OC'ing when playing games.

Current game is TF2 and I just don't want to spring for a quad-core setup just yet...


Any suggestions on a better driver to run? I'm asking because I can't find a good answer... :)

I've also been using the omega drivers with no problems. I'd stick with them.

EDIT: you can try looking here if you want to experiment. Text

NGo's are wortha shot... based on Catalyst 7.3, vs the 7.12 of the Omega

I use the latest official driver from AMD on my x9150 Pro AGP. I do not use the CCP, just the driver only and use the in game settings to configure NWN2 (the only "modern" game that I play).
