    I don't know? Why should I? :3eyes: What are the benifits? :)
    All games mostly work perfectly without it.

    ok, first off, im a bit wary on using a driver sweeper after the problems i had updating the windows 7 service pack (had to format my machine to install the sp) - so is using a driver sweeper really neceassary??

    an secondly, im kinda new to the whole AMD cards, only recently got one after being nvidia my whole life, so can some1 explain what a cap is? :) is it really something that will improve performance? i just installed the 11.5a hotfix, not sure whether or not to install these too.

    cheers! :nerd:

    Driver Sweeper is not mandatory, but it ensures you that all previous files from older drivers have been 100% erased so there's no conflicts.

    Sometimes I don't bother to use it, sometimes I do, never had issues, so it's up to you really.

    A CAP stands for Crossfire Application Profile, which helps for people with more than 1 Graphic Card (Like me for example, with x2 HD6970). Those CAP's bring hotfixes for CrossfireX setups to help Crossfire work better in games, and fix issues with them.

    If you only have 1 card, then you should forget about it, since CAP will do nothing to you. :)

    You would be wrong thinking that there are no profiles to help none Crossfire users as there are some, sure they are less than the ones for Crossfire but they are still there. CAP stands for Catalyst Application Profiles not Crossfire Application Profiles.

    May I ask what GPU's you using when you say that? And, using Radeon Pro as always, or can you play without it now? :)

    Shift 2 was fixed for me after the EADM patch ... No need for Radeon Pro, at least for me.

    Did you rename the shift2u.exe file? Because I have to if I want the crossfire working fine... or almost fine...
