Powerspec G422 with dual Radeon R9 200 display cards. Bought the computer for the other features, memory, quad core Intel, 32GB memory, 2T hdd, 120 GB ssd, etc.


Now Need to learn about the AMD radeon cards. Had Nvidia card in previous computer.


Of course I downloaded Catalyst. Tried to run and it displayed an error message about needing to run aticonfig.


What is that?


When I lookup the drivers under System Setting, it displays that I am running X server -- AMD/ATI display driver wrapper xserver-xorg-video-ati (Recommended Driver)


Would I get better performance using the Catalyst s/w? And what is aticonfig?
