Default No problem.

It drove me nuts the first couple of times I changed drivers and had it happen too, I kept just re-installing it. Fortunately someone turned me on to this trick and it made life a LOT simpler for me.

Thanks for the FX benchies with GTA3, interesting to say the least. I got one more card to test GTA3 on and then I think my curiousity will be all satisfied. (I'm getting a V5 5500, I wanna see how/if it can play GTA3... )
[SIZE=1][I]"It was very important to us that NVIDIA did not know exactly where to aim. As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."

Ok, I have a question then...

I went from a V5 to a GF4 (at the time, I didn't format.), I went ahead and played some of my games for a short time, and when I played GTA3, I just got the little box saying, "Converting textures to optimal format", and away it went.

So is this more of a nV to ATi thing? Or like a corruption of the file?
