View Full Version : Looking better......

Finally, things are looking much better :D after a fresh XP install I went with the FW 61.71 and DX9"b" with the card clocked @ 420 / 1100. I put a couple hours into testing Painkiler the and its runing great ...I mean really great. The odd thing was every time I tried to load a saved game from from before the 6800 (even after this XP redo) the game puked up some strange errors :? ....but starting \ playing a new game, it runs tops.
I'm installing Thief: DS now....I'll be back after some testing.

Good. There are lots of things a nice format and an OS reinstall can fix :clap:

Thief: DS is still doing some strange graphical things, like "triangles of texture are coming out of Garrett's body" ??? in certain enclosed areas, then they're gone. I've seen this at default and OC'd speeds, AA \ AF on & off and across a few driver sets....BUT? the game is stable, now and plays great :) ...outside of the above issue.
I hope this gets fixed in the "official" ForceWare release...

That's good news!

I'm very satisfied with mine! 420/1200 now 12,600 3dmarks

Guys, how about scores with 4X AA and 8X AF applied.

I have never had to reinstall my OS from scratch do to errors so far. Usually I just select install then 'repair', that way I keep all my files and games etc intact.
