    I am using the latest catalyst drivers, 7.2.
    My gfx card is the Club3d radeon 9800XT 256mb.

    Getting a lot VPU recoveries in games.

    What are the most optimal drivers for my 9800xt to decrease the VPU recoveries?

    If VPU recover is kicking in frequently like it seems to be doing in your case, there is something wrong with your video card. You might want to try an earlier set of drivers, like for example Catalyst 6.7 (was a pretty good set IMO) just to rule out the possibility that it's a driver problem. If that doesn't help though, I'd say your card is biting the dust. Sorry.... :(

    A lot of people, including myself, have had problems with 7.2... VPU recovery and other driver errors. Using driver cleaner my last attempt at installing 7.2 seemed to resolve my problems. But, many others it seems still are having issues with 7.2's.

    Isn't there a way to turn off the VPU recovery feature?

    Yupe, you just need to uncheck 'enable vpu recover' in the 'vpu recover' section when you are viewing CCC in advanced mode in advanced view. Check if the power plug connected to your gc is okay. There could be many factors to your problem. Try un-installing the driver. Go in safe mode, use driver cleaner pro, restart and install a fresh copy of drivers. It's just to get your doubts off.

    I strongly recommand NOT turnning off Vpu Recover.You can try older drivers first,such as 5.12,5.13,6.2,6.7,6.12.I don't recommand 6.8 because it caused BSOD on my computer and I heard others had that problem,too.
    Or you can check if the heatseat has too much dust on it,or if the fan is working,or the temperature in your case,etc.

    ONCE AGAIN: If VPU Recover kicks in frequently, it is a sign that something is amiss. You can try a different set of drivers, but if VPU recover continues to kick in, your card is dying. Turning off VPU Recover will only make things worse. Anyway, do what you want, it's your card... :p

    How will turning off VPU recovery make things worse? I thought when it was first implemented that it was no big deal to turn it off. Hmmm, I just checked and I have it on; I must have had it off with an earlier driver.
