Today i bought Ati Radeon 9500 just to try it out and might return it if the
experience is not good. So far it's doing pretty well on my old computer.

when i inserted the card it automically had the drivers and was installed by
Window Vista. Display Adapter: RADEON 9550 (Microsoft Corporation WDDM)

Do i need to install Catalyst 7.2 Display Driver for Window Vista? what are
the advantage of installing it compare to the one included on Window Vista?

people were having different problems\\ns with the rtm drivers.
like BSOD, reboots, hang etc....
as ati finds fixes they release new drivers.
you may not find any difference in the way you use your computer.
but having the latest drivers is usually best.

In my case,the index rating went down from 3.7 to 3.2 instead when
installing Catylist driver. Performance were no better or even worst, just
a few additional menu and options that came with the driver.

my rating did not really change I want from 7.1 to 7.2,
main thing if noticed was some quality improvement with some videos
remember the rating is relative and is not really indicative to your expected performance.
it all depends on how you use your computer.
