Default Re: Stability problems with 6800 Ultra w/ nforce2 chipset?

I am running a 6800 Ultra on a dual Athlon MP (2800+ on Tyan Thunder K7 (2.14 BIOS rev)), 61.11 Nvidia drivers on the FC2 2.6.7-1.494.2.2smp kernel, AGP 4x using agpgart. The only time I have a problem is when I use the nvidia-settings app to set AA levels, and that only with RTCW and Tux Racer (commercial version). If I change the AA setting, I have to delete the config file before starting the games (once recreated with the new AA in effect, they work fine until it is changed again). Strange, but true. Serious Sam doesn't need the config file recreated to keep working, maybe the other devs should ask Mr. Gordon to help out...

I just upgraded from a GF4 Ti4600 I had been using for a long time, I had to delete the config files for the above as well as my .xscreensaver file for some reason. Once the .xscreensaver file was recreated (set to random with just my favorites in the list), the OGL screen savers stopped getting hung up. This is under Gnome rather than KDE, but maybe recreating certain config files will help there as well. I don't see anything in any of the three config files that should make this happen, but for some reason it has solved the problem for me.

I forgot to mention, the power supply is the original 460 Watt supply that was the only one that would work with this motherboard at the time of release... I also forgot to add that I do get the blue for the selected columns and rows in Gnumeric. What else did I forget...
