Re: Madden 2006 SLI issues anyone?
I'm currently using 77.76 and I'm using a Sony 21" CRT. I've had the same issue you're having when using my LCD (with NFSU2 and there was one other I can't recall). It appears that some games require the resolutions below the native resolution to be valid/supported. Mine doesn't support 1280x960 (native is 1280x1024) so I'd never see a resolution above 1024x768 in the options. I guess the game would test the resolutions and fail on 1280x960 so it would assume my max was 1024x768.
Anyway, using SFR seems to be working pretty well for me although the performance isn't quite as good as the AFR mode. I'm running 1600x1200 8xS AA, 16xAF, gamma corrected AA, Super Sampling TAA and sometimes dipping into the upper 30s (when showing closeup views) although it mainly stays pegged at 60. When using the AFR mode I don't recall seeing it go less than 60. I just completed a full game without any flickering shadows though. I'm going to try the 77.77s now and see how that goes.
