Re: GTX280 stuck at 3d speeds even at desktop.
I have this issue too on my EVGA GTX260-216 (55nm) "675MHz SSC" edition. The card is running with default settings. Only my CPU is overclocked. (The video card is already more than I need for my LCD.)
After any 3D, it seems stuck at 675/1458/1152 forever at the desktop.
