That means it is supported there. You can turn off fast writes with the low-level overclocking in RivaTuner. Under the AGP settings. Though you may have to also install Coolbits 2 to get the fastwrites off option to stick in the drivers and RivaTuner.

so just cause it says its supported doesnt means its on right.

Right, but for it to be off in the drivers you have to turn it off with RivaTuner or you may get random freezing.

how do you turn it off in rivatuner. its greyed out, (plus it says its off) is there a more advanced option or something, thanks :D

Low-Level System Settings --> AGP
If that doesn't work go to Power Users ---> AGP ---> AGPFW (set this value to 0).

I think it's off. I have the same 'problem'. I disabled it in Bios. I could care less what the Forcewares say, I can tell it's off since I can run my GT at 425/1100 and I won't get all the freezing crap in Far Cry that I would went Fast Writes was on. In other words, your Bios takes precedence over software.
