Download AMD Chipset Drivers for Windows 7 for ATI Catalyst Driver

I've been trying to install and configure my new AMD Phenom II X4 810 computer with mainboard GigaByte GA-MA78GM-UD2H.

GigaByte GA-MA78GM-UD2H mainboard contains the AMD 780G + SB700 Chipset. And for updating the drivers for a Windows 7 operating system, I had difficulty to find and download AMD chipset drivers or ATI Catalyst driver for GigaByte GA-MA78GM-UD2H mainboard.

First I download and installed the Windows Update suggested graphic driver for ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. But this driver that Windows suggested is old when compared with the default installed by Windows 7 driver.

So I downloaded the Windows 7 driver suitable for Windows 7 64 bit architecture from mainboard producer GigaByte 's web site.

Here is the link that I used for Windows 7 64bit driver AMD Chipset Driver (include chipset\sata raid\vga driver) from GigaByte.

Later I installed this driver, I did not get any improvement in the Windows 7 Experience Index for graphics applications and graphics subscores.

Finally I found a newer Windows 7 driver from AMD. Most recent Catalyst Drivers for Windows 7 can be downloaded with additional optional applications from Windows 7 64Bit Catalyst Drivers.

When I installed the Catalyst dirivers on my Windows 7 Ultimate computer followed by the installation of optional packages Avivo Video Converter and HydraVision, I got 0.1 point increase in the Windows 7 Experience Index results for graphics.

Perhaps the results I got after so much work for the graphics driver for Windows 7 is not perfect, at least I know that they are the most recent drivers for Windows 7 X64 OS.
