Game Booster is snake oil, it doesn't really do anything beneficial. Most Windows services run at background priorities so they won't actively take away resources from other running processes like games. Windows Vista and Windows 7 do automatic background defragging already as well.

The ATI Graphics Drivers & Software page is where to find new version 10.7 Catalyst reference drivers for ATI graphics cards.

Oh, for Jeezus...I just installed 10.6 in both XP and 7 yesterday! I haven't even gotten to test them in any gaming sessions yet. Figures...

The main fix I'm looking for, and probably will never get, is something to combat the 'micro-stuttering' in DIRT and especially GRID in WinXP. Man, is it maddening! Every 10 seconds or so everything slows down almost to a stop within a half-second and, if you have force-feedback on, will pull your wheel to the left HARD. Just try racing with that! I never had the problem before, but after I built this system and went from an HD5770 back to my HD4870, it started. Weird cause my 'older' system also used this card but had no stuttering. Apparently, it's 'random'. Now, in the computing world, I have a hard time believing anything is ultimately 'random'. There is something causing it and I'm hoping to find the fix one day in the ATI driver notes...

Fingers crossed...

Main System:
---------------
Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2
Intel Core i5-750 2.8ghz
2gb Kingston DDR3/667 PC3-10700 RAM
Visiontek ATI Radeon HD4870 512mb/DDR5
WindowsXPSP3/Windows7 DualBoot

Secondary System:
----------------------
Asus P5Q-EM
Intel Core-2-Duo E8400 2.66ghz oc'd ~3.01ghz (on Tuesdays with a full moon)
2gb OCZ Reaper v3 DDR2/1066 RAM
HIS ATI Radeon HD5770 1gb/DDR5
WindowsXPSP3/Windows7 DualBoot

Oh wow, a reason to actually upgrade my drivers. Normally when I read the release notes the updates have nothing to do with my card or system setup.
