XFX 7950GT agp, drivers?

Hi all! This is my first post in AOA. I found this site a while back searching for modded drivers for a BFG 6800 GT oc agp. I still have the 6800 but also a XFX 7950 GT agp now too.
I am wanting to know if anyone here has a 7950 agp and what drivers do you use? I've been able to get a score of 19567 in 3dMark 03 and would like to break 20k if possible. Thanks.

Welcome to AOA...

What drivers are you using now?

I have a 7950 GT PCIe card. I still use the 9x.xx drivers. I do not like the newer drivers.

Thanks. I'm using 163.75 from their website. I tried using older drivers a while back but they would not work. Might try again.

Make sure to use driver cleaner pro found in our files section to remove any leftovers before installing the new drivers.

I uninstalled from add/remove programs, restarted in safe mode used Driver Cleaner Pro restarted then installed new drivers.

I forget what the error message was but it was something like "drivers not compatible with hardware". I tried a few different ones with same message and ended up using the ones that came on the installation cd.

My current drivers are the latest ones from Nvidia and they seem fine but I want to squeeze every once of performance from this card possible. I've had really good results from XTreme-G 84.56 modded drivers on my 6800GT and hope to find some modded drivers for my 7950GT that work as well.

THat is really odd. Does it not let you install at all? Does it just warn you. I would also look at the latest moded drivers also found in our files section. THey seem to give a little boost.

I get a message saying that the drivers are not compatible with my hardware. This is just with 9x series drivers. All the 1xx-series drivers have worked so far.
I loaded 163.44 modded drivers from AOA this morning and broke my old record of 19567 in 3d03. My new score in 19796.
