Hi all,

I have been messing around with the 53.03 Forceware drivers and overall they seem great and blow the 52.16's away but i just ran 3DMark03 with the 53.03's and my score is about 1000 down ?????

With the 52.16's i got: 4684
With the 53.03's i got: 3757

??????

.... gwah? that makes no sense, reinstall the drivers and 3DMark (the 53.03 drivers reinsert the 3DMark cheats, so it should go UP by a thousand)

AHEM! I believe you meant to say "the 53.03 drivers reinsert the 3dMark optimizations.."

nVidia stopped putting cheats in their drivers, they said so....remember? :angel2:

lol uninstalled 3DMark and the drivers, cleared the reg of old crap then ran driver cleaner 2.
Reinstalled everything and now the score is down worse, 3460 !!!!!!!!!!!!

Only think i can see causing it is when i run driver cleaner 2 at some point it wants the XP CD as some files its now getting may not be compatable or somethin.

Anyway any ideas ?
