(only $130 at newegg-refurb.)
Which driver version is best?
Should I use a tweaker to OC the core/mem?
If so, which one?

Use the new 4.2 drivers, they rock. My 9500p is bios locked so I can't OC it without flashing the bios so I have no idea what is a good ATi overclocking program.
The special setting I would suggest is 4x anti-aliasing and 8x aniscopic filtering. It will change the way you game.

dling them now.
The Omega drivers are pretty good too. Great for gaming, not as good for benchmarking.

I'm using the Catalyst 4.2 right now with my R9800Pro.

I hear the newest Catalyst drivers are quality stuff. Also, for overclocking I would imagine that PowerStrip would work well, it does some other stuff that's pretty cool too.

I haven't used powerstrip in like 4 years, but I'll take a look at it. Thanks.

The Omega Drivers that Apex mentioned are tweaked Cat drivers with a few extra utilities. It will let you OC your card and flash it into the bios.
