WOW, nice game... scary thou...lol
but anyway, i got the game today and i start playing, i installed fraps to see the FPS, and it showed me between 14-40 which is nice, but when it show 14, it didn't feel like it was 14 fps, i mean it wasn't a jumpy or something...
i'm running the game on High Quality, 800x600, Antian.. 2x

You use AA but no AF? Have you tried using AF but no AA?

It is good to hear that the game is playable on a Ti series! Are there any demos that we can download yet?

I have a Ti4600 and even though I can get Doom 3 to run and look very nice in medium settings it tends to set my monitor off into what I can only describe as power saving mode but I think its just turning the monitor off and I can also hear the sound stuttering at the moment the game crashed/monitor turned off.

This is in no way just Doom 3 it has been happening more and more recently with such titles as Splinter Cell 1 & 2, Star Wars Galaxies but only when I use the Vertex/Pixel Shaders option (it never crashes when they are disabled).

Also Ive seen it do exactly the same trick on other games that I normally play trouble free such as Colin McRae 4 and a few other 3D games. Thief 3 however worked ok considering it was 3D intense with amazing effects.

I get no errors from these crashes, its almost like the card or monitor just dont like playing these things anymore and its throwing its dummy out the pram. My machines only a couple of years old and I think I can get more out of it without having to spend a firtune in hardware just to play a game I know can run at medium settings (good for me).

Heres my specs and what hardweare I use. Ive tried almost everything to sort this out, including the obvious such as making sure power saving settings are off (always do that) I got all the latest drivers and updated bios etc, and I have plenty cooling inside, so I just need someone who has similair problems or one who knows what may be causing it.
