I have been using ati up until now and I am about to get a 6800gt :D . Anyway I tryed searching forums and really couldnt find anything that really answered my questions.
First question: should I turn fastwrites on or off and why.
2nd:There are so many tweaked, beta, official, ect. drivers for nivida cards. Which is the best for playing Battlefield 2?
3rd: What should I use to overclock rivatuner, coolbits?

1] General rule of thumb is that turning fastwrites off is better on NV hardware.Although diferent users have diferent experiences (posting your full system specs would help :))
and also look in here: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=32759. You may find your answer
2] 77.30 or 77.72: thread on BF2 http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=51823
3] Coolbits for straight OC would be my advise.Rivatuner for general all around tweaking with your GPU.It's a must have for NV cards.Get them both aniwhay.I do..

I always heard instability due to fast-writes was more of a mobo chipset thing, that gfx card thing. I have fast-writes on myself and never have any issues. On my old KT7A Via chipset, fast-writes caused an instant blue-screen.

6800GT is a very worthy card, coming from an ATi to NV updater but stay-the-hell-away-from-it if you have a nforce3 motherboard (will spare you a huge headache) :S Peace,

Sorry the wording may be incorrect on my post, but i was trying to call is attention to possible problem on the mobo,ence the link for the "stutering" thread.

I think i'll just turn fastwrites off to be safe, and plus I dont think having them on helps anything anyway.

I have an nForce 3 mobo and haven't experienced any problems. What is this hell you speak of?

I keep fastwrite on and it has never cause me any problems ,except that I can overclock higher when it is turn off ,but I don't over clock because with fastwrites on I score higher then haveing it off at default clocks.

My 2 cents = with 6800GT @ stock speeds and F/W On = no problems BUT @ OC speeds 3D games freeze unless F/W is turned OFF.
