So I got my new HAWTNESS card on friday the Gigiabyte R9 280x Rev2. I know to usually forgo the CD for the drivers because chances are they are outdated. So I proceed to AMD's driver page. I guess AMD doesnt have WHQL drivers, because all I see are Beta's. In fact going back a year there isnt a single WHQL driver for video cards. WTH? And whats up with the bloatware that installed? Who actually uses this crapware Raptr???? Anyways short rant but if there are any AMD owners out there that want to give me some tips and tricks or tell what I should and shouldn't do I am all ears.

TBH, I didnt know what I would need. I guess from now on its just driver and Catalyst Control Center.
