Well the newest ones on nvidias site run fine but I can't use the shadows in Bf2. With the new drivers which when I tested it at 1600X1200 ran flawlessly except for the drivers causing stalling every 40-30 seconds for a couple seconds. Disabling shadows on the new drivers doesn't help either. The old 71.89 drivers can run the game all day long but I have to disable shadows cause they are just square blocks on my 6800gt. Has anyone else had this problem? It seems to me it does this in any direct x game. Only other game I have tried them with is ut2004 and I got the same problem. I might try far cry next or Splinter cell chaos theory. They ran flawlessy on the old drivers.

I used to have this problem before a long time ago but it was like every 3 seconds instead of every minute. I fixed that by turning off fast writes like a lot of people had to do, and have never had a problem since.

Full system specs are Amd 64 3200+ Vnf3250 mother board 1gb2x512 Corsair pc 3200xl Audigy 2 BFG 6800gt.

How 'bout 77.50 and 77.62? And how 'bout leaving some computer specs so we know what you are running?

K I fixed the driver numbers and posted my specs. I just want to know if anyone else has had this issue with the new drivers in direct x games.

If you're overclocking, try stock settings. It kind of seems like it's throttling back but when that has happened to me, the freezes would normally be a little longer.

Neither 77.51 or 77.64 are available to the public for one reason or another.

LOL...I was thinking about that same thread. Maybe this thread will grow to 40+ pages also.

It does not look like this issue will ever be fixed in the 6800 series cards.

What sticky thread the one where people have been having problems since the card came out. I turned off fast writes and that fixed it for every driver and game up until now.
