It's awesome, I love steam! No monkeying around, no uninstalling or driver sweeping, just two clicks and I have the new drivers! It'd be nice if it updated the crossfire profiles as well though... AMD should just include them in the driver update

Even if you don't use steam you don't need to driver sweep or uninstall the old ones. I don't know why people are so adament about doing that. I've always installed new drivers over the old.

Well all I know is I had problems with installing 10.5 over 10.4, and it was a PITA to fix. I was skeptical of this with steam, but no issues so far
