Well a couple days ago I had a WWII itch, so I go to fire up CoD. I'm running the latest drivers and don't have anything over clocked, right now everything is running stock.

CoD crashes. I figured being that it is a different video card from my 5770, and also quite a bit of time has passed since my previous attempt to play any older games, you know I just thought it'd work. Nope. And I'm not about to go digging through the archive of drivers trying to find the one that'll let me play an older game. Not when I've got Skyrim, RAGE, and BF3 to occupy my time.

It is frustrating however, I've never had such a problem with any nVidia card I've owned, and I've owned FAR more nvidia based cards than ATi or AMD ones.

I've often wondered- what if I setup an XP virtual machine with, say an emulated GF6800 or whatever. Maybe then I could play those older titles.
Gonna have to call the user error card on that one...

I just installed COD because I was curious if what you said was true... And well, It installed and ran just fine for me. That's even with some beta drivers and 3 7970's... Don't see how you had a problem with mature drivers and a single gpu.
