Well, obviously, I’ve upgraded my graphics card several times. The wake up call for me was when one of AMD’s driver updates in 2004 made it so that Rebellion’s 1999 game Aliens vs Predator didn’t work anymore. Before that, I used to religiously upgrade drivers the moment they were available.
Believe me, it solved so many problems. Just stick with older drivers man. Stick with older drivers as long as you can, it really minimizes problems on the PC, at least it did for me.
