    Well when i downloaded and install the ati/amd one, ever time i got finish playing a game, it will return back to the desktop very slow and the screen will black out and come back, very weird. But using the Tweakforce drivers, those problems wasn't there, plus it has extra options in the CCC, like HQ AA and other stuff.

    Keep in mind, i am using a Visiontek 2400 HD PCI card. So it may be different on your end, but go ahead and try both. Try the tweak force first and see how it goes. :)

    foxX, I have two questions for you:

    1. does Catalyst Control Center work for you on Windows Server 2008 x64? I have a very similar setup to yours and can't seem to launch CCC no matter what I do: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=266998
    Should I try a different (or beta) version?

    2. how do you know you are not getting DXVA acceleration under Server 2008?
