u are missing one point:
: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 4300 @ 1.80GHz
You can also read those things in the pasted logs.
And again, theres no need to prove things with native games. This is completly waste of time.
I do not report a problem that only reflects me, Im reporting a general problem.
And also Im quite sure that NVIDIA is so smart to test native games against performance regressions.
Also keep in mind that the rendering speed of the 8600GT is in most cases supperior to that of the 7600GT, I only showed you 2 corner cases which needs to be fixed. And think about that one of it has to do with HL2....
Last thing, as a user I want support. I dont buy a 150€ card to spend 5 hours in debugging and testing. Unless nvidia pays me for that.
