If you don't freeze, do you need the update?

    Is there anything in the update that I should have? I've only froze 2 times since August 7th.

    Yes - updated graphics drivers.

    It's recommended to always keep your graphics drivers up to date.

    I didn't freeze and I updated.

    Expose, Front Row, etc. is smoother and faster now.

    Plus my iMac is cooler. (Temperature-wise)

    The update supposedly improves the performance of the graphics card (assuming its working :rolleyes:) I got a 5% boost in the OpenGL test.

    I just installed the update and just had my 1st freeze coming out of a sleep.

    should have left my computer alone!

    My iMac doesn't freeze, but I did the update anyway. Personally, I don't really notice any difference. My iMac is still rock solid.
