Question For Which Driver Option, Should I Go ? ! ? !

Hi, folks,

Simple Questions regarding ATI's Graphic Card Driver(s.

Well, Guys, I Installed " OpenSuSE Linux 10.0 x86_64 " BIT Version Linux on my Desktop. My Desktop has " ATI Radeon Xpress 200G Graphics Card , Which is onBoard (Model of Main Board :RS480M2-IL, MSI)

Now, My questions are: OpenSuSE, by Default, Installed It's Own Driver for My Graphics Card.

But One Driver is Available on and i read on so many Threads that Driver from should be installed.

So Experts, Please Guide me, Should i stick with Default Driver or should i go for one available on ATI's Site.

Second Query is : Does the Default Driver Support 3D Acceleration or not ?

If any body recommend , Driver from then please tell me too how to uninstall default driver and how to install new driver afterwards.

Every thing : Like Colors, Resolution of My Monitor and System are very good with Default Driver.
