Oh LOL Go ahead and hit the "Check Now" button. I'm sure the report will be "sad" to inform you that your PC sucks for BF3. The good news is Nvidia will be happy to step up to the plate and sell you dual GTX580's at what I'm sure will be competitive prices. Once installed, your system will run the game OK. To get maximum benefits of running the game at Ultra settings, you'll have to purchase a 3rd card though.

Yeah, just hit that button boi!! :captnkill:

I'm being silly. However, I was trying to illustrate a point; you need to keep an eye on vendors who are eager to sell you something and their "advice".

I went to the website you mentioned. Neat place. The graph on it pegged out on beyond recommended and topped out on the graph at fast. I'm encouraged.

Cheers!! :)

I got the images just fine, if it matters. I used the custom install.

That is strange. I did the normal install and they came up for me.

I am having quite some problems with these drivers. When exiting the control panel everything crashes with the error that "Nvidia Control Panel Application has stopped working". This never happened before 285.xx (both 285.62 and 285.38 results in that error). I even tried a clean reinstall and removed ntunes, but that changed nothing.

The good thing is that it crashes after setting up any changes, so the driver is working. But this is not the quality I have come to expect from Nvidia. And there is still no SLI support for RAGE, and RAGE does not even work correctly, unless I disable SLI in the drivers. Well, whether Nvidia or Id Software is to blame, I don't know...

Furthermore, when trying to set up a custom resolution on my good old Sony F520 (which is still king of the hill when running at 2048x1536@85Hz at 85 FPS) then this does not work with the 285 drivers. So it seems that Nvidia does not care about CRT owners anymore, and that is truly sad, since it probably would take just a tiny effort to make everything work flawlessly. Maybe it is time to test an AMD card, but then I will loose PhysX... Sigh...

BTW, I am running Vista 32bit Enterprise OS.

Installing these made me lose my ability to use SLI. The option disappeared from control panel

No problems here. SLI is in the CP. Maybe re-install the drivers.

As already stated I also have the problem of TV videos in WMC playing sound with no video (black screen). I switched back to Beta 285.38 and problem went away.
