Hi, I was really wanting to try to enable FSAA for UT2003, but I'm pretty sure you need the ATI control panel for that... which didn't come w/ OS X. I know I probably have to install drivers from ATI for that... but they only have them for the Radeon 9000 and 9800... any suggestions? Thanks.

Just to let people know- don't try the 9800 drivers. The utility runs for 2 seconds then crashes. You can just about make out that it says "Unrecognised ATI graphics" and some other stuff (VRAM, etc) but that's it. There are no other options available on the left hand coloumn (as there are when you have a 9800) so even if it didn't crash, you couldn't do anything.

I'm also waiting for the new real-time demos of what the 9600 and 9800 can do. The 9000's real-time demos look amazing on this 9600- it can run one on each monitor- both at the same frame rate as my Dual 1.25 G4 with 9000 gets with one on one monitor.

Hopefully Panther and new games taking advantage of Panther's new 3D drivers will improve things.
