Being a BF1942 DesertCombat player, I upgraded DC to its final release the same weekend the 4.10 driver came out. I would load a map, play for about 5 minutes, and the whole thing would lock on me. Checking the DC forums, everyone's best advice was to upgrade drivers. I hopped over to Guru3d, got the 4.10 drivers (I remember thinking, "new Cat drivers? Already?!?") and hooah, no more freezing. I haven't noticed much of a performance increase in my 9600 XT with the new drivers, but they made my game work again.
