OK this is a big step up from my tnt so i dont really know how to use the config menu thing really well yet.
Where can i get the latest drivers (xx.76 i think)
Also where is the menu to change the core speed and memory speed.

You need to install coolbits 1 or coolbits 2 before you'll see the overclocking menu. Coolbits 1 just adds a few things like the overclocking menu. Coolbits 2 does a lot more. You can find out what it does by checking the above thread.

I started to play FarCry and noticed a lot of black patches and some color distortion. I tried to take a screenshot with f12 but i dont think it did because i cant find them. Anyone have any ideas why it might be doing this?

Far Cry is kind of messed up on the nvidia side at the moment. They say the 1.2 patch will be released soon but they've been saying that for a while. You could try different drivers, if you're overclocking lower the settings or maybe try the patch that basically causes the game to run in the r3xx mode (which seems to work pretty well).

Try here for a link to the patch that forces the r3xx mode:

The link is like the 2nd or 3rd post down. You might want to read through that thread from the beginning and then read through the one that deals with SM 3.0. They're both stickies.
