What other graphics drivers can we install (without problem) other than those Apple includes with Boot Camp for performance improvements?

Also I want to install the ATI Catalyst Control Center on Vista but ATI doesn't list it under the Boot Camp section. Is it safe to install the XP version of Catalyst Control Center along side the Vista drivers included with Boot Camp?

Lastly, does anyone have ATITool working on Vista Boot Camp?

I have installed other ATI graphics drivers on my Revision A MacBook Pro using MobilityModder, a third-party tool. I can't speak for the effectiveness of that tool on Vista, but I do remember seeing instructions for getting it to work there. That should solve your first two questions. As for getting ATITool to work on Vista -- I have no clue. Sorry. Here's my post on installing ATI's drivers: [solution] Install/Update Windows ATI graphics drivers for Mobility Graphics Cards

Please reply to that post if you get it working with Vista. Thanks!
