Default need drivers for 7950 card - 06-12-2017, 00:19 | posts: 2

I have been away from my desktop for a very long time and i realize i need to update drivers for my win 7 pc as i just got a new dell 2717hx monitor. the driver is listed as from 2012 ( lots of things have reset back to original values on the pc)

i am more interested in stability than speed.

thank you

I would honestly recommend an upgrade to Windows 10 and using the latest driver from AMD (currently 17.6.1).
