ok thanks; a little off topic but has anyone heard of problems arising when switching from an ati card to a 6800 while not reinstalling windows or reformatting, cause a friend of mine is getting artifacting in games and 3dmark03 after switching from his 9800 pro to a 6800

Your friend needs to uninstall drivers in safemode......run driver cleaner, then install 6800 drivers. Ppl switching from ATI to nvidia(or other way around) usually do have problems unless they clean everything out left over by the old vid cards drivers. IF that doesn not help, then it may be necessary to to do a reformat as even driver cleaner cannot remove some left over garbage 100% of the time.
