Default Best 8500 Drivers For Win 98 (SE)?

What are the best drivers for the 8500 retail? I am currently using the .9009 drivers (your opinion on them?) and have been hearing that the .9021 driver is the best so far...is this true? Why?

Question

The newest drivers have a much better implimintation of OGL than previous drivers. This will allow much better gameplay in all OGL games.
