I don't know what you are talking about, by key do you mean a registration key? That depends on the company.

Sorry what I ment to say was I went to the avi webstie and downloaded the Driver update program but had to register for a key so it could update. It's been a day since I registered and I haven't got my key and I'm wondering how long it takes or should i use a different driver updater. (sorry for my last post been up for 23hrs)

I wouldn't use a program that updates them like that. Just install them manually, that way you know exactly what's installing and going on.

They've been slowing down I think. ATI will have driver releases like crazy for their 5870 though, dx11 is a lot to build on and keep efficient.

Just to let you ATI guys know, I was getting flickering on 2d trees using the new 10.5 drivers, I reverted back to 10.4 and that problem went away.
