Hi,
On the AMD website,I can't find graphics for windows 8,only for windows 7 and down,can I use them?
Will there be any harm to my computer?
I allready update the driver card in the device manager,but I don't have CCC(catalyst control center).
Thanks.

Before you try to install those, be sure to read the Release Notes. They only apply to the most recent series of AMD HD cards. If you have one of the older HD cards, or even worse, one of the X-series cards, they will not work.

Set Windows Update to find updates for all products using Microsoft Update and it will most likely find the right driver for you. It seems that in Windows 8 Microsoft have compiled a list of up to date (or specially reserved) drivers for WU to download. It worked for my Nvidia GTX295 - the driver it downloaded is a later one than any published on Nvidia's website, beta or otherwise.

    Using non-RAID on purpose as I find it too fussy and temperamental.

Yes it's the best choice.

If there are no drivers found for your graphics card and the ones that Ivan mentioned don't apply then you have to download the Win7 version and try it (get what you need x86 or x64 of course). If the exe fails (maybe some checks and saying 'wrong os') you can extract the exe with 7-Zip (7-Zip) and find the driver in one of the folders. Install it with device manager manually.

Try to install catalyst application manually if you really need it.

But if the drivers work and are up to date then I have nothing more to say.
