I'm by no means condescending. Quit assuming things & read my post. As I said, not everything is about FPS increases. A lot of the driver releases are compatibility improvements & increases in quality.
I do use an external monitor, as stated in my sig & pics of my laptop review, as well as my desktop build. I have never had an external monitor issue with with my 32", my 27", or my 19" external display. Perhaps if you let us know what problems you are having with your external display we can help you.
And YES, as I already said, as a LAPTOP USER (in my sig) I have seen a definite, significant improvement with the 169.01 drivers. Everyone else that have installed the latest (169.04) drivers have aso seen improvements.
