I've been noticing small performance loses with this card over the past month. When I first got it and had my Intel rig ( 2.6c @ 3.2 / 1gb pc4000 / abit ai7 i865 ) All my games ran fine and i got over 12,400 in 3dmark03. Then, I ran 3dmark03 a while back and could'nt get over 11,800 with the same rig. Nothing I would do would make it break 12,000. The card was clocked at 420/1150 with the 66.70 drivers. Then, I bought this A64 rig in my sig which is an A64 3400 CG 1mb @ 2.5ghz, 1GB OCZ 3200 el rev2 @ 250mhz 1:1 2.5-3-3-5, and a DFI UT LP. Anyways, I configured almost EVERYTHING and I cant get past 11,800 either! I ran Aquamark3 and got 68,000 ( 11,151 CPU/ 9,400 GPU ) Right now, I've been running Doom 3 timedemo and i've been getting 38 fps @ 1280x1024 4xaa 8xaf high settings. I have sideband addressing and fast write disabled also. The card is on AGP 8x with 128mb aperature. I really dont know what to do.....someone help :retard:

Most likely you ruined your windows in the meantime. Do a fresh install and it will be fine again. If your gt would die it would do it with flshes and artifacts but not with performance loss.

After looking @ your Aquamark3 score, it looks like my 6800 GT gets the same GPU score as your X800 XT PE, maybe Doom 3 just doesnt like my drivers. Anyways, I doubt formatting will do anything, B/C i did a fresh install when i got this rig setup earlier this week.

Bench with the 61.77 driver and your score should go back up.
