Can I upgrade to 5.8 through Omega Drivers if I always used The Regular ATI plugins before?

I never cared about Omega drivers until tonight since i knew very little about it.

EDIT: wow I can't belive I installed those "Omega Drivers", egh.. I guess It doesn't like my Puter much I had to uninstall it.
