Hopefully this is better than the last two releases. I would love to try this however my HD5970 is being a POS and refuses to not lock Windows up.

I quite enjoyed it saying it increases frames/performance for Borderlands but at the same time increases the risk of it crashing. Uh....wtf?

I seem to be getting random BSOD in games with 10.7 I thought it was my gpu overclock, but I set it back to stock clocks and it still happens. Only happens maybe 1 time for about 2 hours of gaming, but still. rolling back to 10.6
