Default OMEGA drivers?

Hi!
I've just recently heard of these so called "Omega" drivers (
http://www.omegadrivers.net/ ), which are avaiable both for ATI and nVidia
cards.
I'm aware that these drivers are one of those unnoficial drivers, tweaked
for performance boost.

I was wondering if anyone around here actually did install these drivers
(latest Win2k/XP version 1.5672) and how you are experiencing them? Any
performance boost? Any flaws/bugs? How's the overall stability? Above all -
is it worth having these installed instead of the official ones.

Speaking of the drivers, which official version of the drivers is most
suitable today for games?
At the moment, I'm using version 53.03 with my MSI Geforce5900SPVTD.

Thanks in advance!

I've found the Omegas and Starstorm drivers to be practically worthless
for NVidia cards. The official 61.77's perform the best on my FX5600.
The official 56.72's served me well for the longest time, but I'm using
the newest for Doom 3 and several bug fixes here and here. Plus you
have the option to disable trilinear and aniso optimizations in 61.77.

The only time the Omegas ever came in handy was trying to get the newer
Cataylst drivers running on a Radeon 7500 Mobile chip in my laptop.
