Default 6800XT on Vista RTM

I have an XFX 6800XT card that is quite unstable under Vista RTM using NVidia's RC2 drivers. I run at 16001200, and I will lose video on one or both monitors quite reliably if I try to watch a video file using WMP, and often when I look at still pictures as well. Often I will get video back, and Vista will give me a taskbar balloon saying that my "video adapter stopped responding and has recovered."

Reading the forums here, my experience seems to be worse than average; most RTMers like me seem to be reporting solid 2D performance and problems when they try to play 3D games. I was wondering if anyone would point out why I might be having an especially bad experience, and if I should update to some of the unofficial drivers that are being discussed.

My 6800 ultra is fine under Aero RTM, its only in games that the fun starts.

Same driver i guess...
