I haven't tried omegas... Can you describe what you think is better about them? I'm using an 8500 with the newest catalyst.

well they seem to have less issues and run all my games well....3dmark is a bit lower but thats not a big deal....for example when the original 3.0 catalysts came out opengl didnt work in most games....so omegacorner released drivers like two days later fixing that

I just tried the 3.0a and the 2.5 and the performance is better on the 2.5. Example: when you play Splinter Cell at the begining before you move anything I get fps of 38 with the 2.5. With the 3.0a I get between 28-31. The image quality I ran with were 2x FSAA and 4 AF and both looked the same. I have not tried the omega ones for a long time and I think I was getting like 34 FPS.

well i found that the newest omegas were the best for my 8500Le other than the catalyst 2.3s (though those dont have vsync force )
