Re: Help me install the best driver for ATI HD 5870
Asking for the "best" driver is a vague request because you've not bothered to tell us what "best" means.
If "best" means the most stable, using Additional Drivers is the way to go because those already have been tested and packaged.
If "best" means the latest version, with the newest features, then downloading the most current released version from AMD is the way to go.
If "best" means the version on the leading edges, then the latest Beta drivers from AMD is the way to go.
Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
