To be honest, I went from 10.5 (when I first got my HD5870) and upgraded to the next Catalyst version without cleanup every time AMD came up with a new version of Catalyst, no issues. I know that it's always better to driversweep...but I never do, unless I come across a driver issue...which I didn't have with my HD5870 YET...crossing fingers!

I just installed Cat 10.10 and the ATI STREAM package (renamed to AMD Catalyst™ Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP)) (OPEN CL and DIRECT COMPUTE 5.0 enabled)

Anyway, no issues yet. Temperatures are the same, FPS seems maybe a little higher, something like 5 fps extra in BFBC2 at the same settings...

I haven't tested any other games yet, and of all the games mentioned in the "improvement section" of the driver's read me file..I don't have any installed to compare...
