My mistake, I meant 10.7.  I'll give some of the others a shot. I know in Windows 7 10.3 is the best ATM.  After that release Battlefield Bad Company 2 lost Crossfire support (bug), and I've heard Starcraft 2 doesn't do so well with the newer drivers. 

I'll post results.  

I also forgot to mention that I did install COD4 Modern Warfare just to see if I could get any recent DX game to run.  It ran without any sort of tweaks, but there was this strage tiling effect going on.  It could have been a result of Crossfire 'Super Tiling' rending mode gone horribly wrong.....I didn't try setting Catalyst AI to advanced before uninstalling. 

In fact I'll go ahead and test with Catalyst AI disabled, since I can't remember if I tried that or not.
