I hope you get a good night sleep. I know I will.

EDIT -- I suggest the next time you two decide to engage in a meta-flaming war, do so via Email or PMs. Don't do it in this thread. Thanks. --Sy--

I have lost faith in Nvidia responding. I don't think they will because there is nothing they could say that won't enrage everyone. I think they will quietly fix this problem at some point in the future. But I have lost my patience, so with signs that ATI continue to improve their driver quality, I will give the ATI 9800XT a shot, unless NV38 comes out first and I read that it fixes the flicker problem for people. Heck, if NV38 won't be as fast as 5900 Ultra, and no faster Nvidia product will exist until NV40, then I probably won't bother with NV38 at all. By the time NV40 comes out in the spring, it sounds like R420 on the stable .15 micron tech will be out, and if it really is 2X faster than a 9800, I am afraid Nvidia will truly be destined to become the graphics underdog. And no, I am not an ATI fanboy, I've RMA'ed TWO ATI cards already (plus a 5900) and currently have a GF4 in my comp.

this sucks. i think im being screwed over by the companies involved because none of them want to take responsibility for this. So far no word from NVIDIA, MSI still has stopped responding to my emails, and my retailer wont give me a refund. a;lksjdlkfj;alkj;dlkj;lfkj;alkdjlskjflskdjf;alskdj f; (%#*))(#*%)

Does anyone want to buy a very good condition MSI GeForce FX 5900 Ultra 256mb?

NVIDIA was made aware of an issue involving the GeForce FX 5900 series of graphics cards where some users have reported a slight "flickering" of the image on their screen, visible on a light color background in certain 3D scenes.

In examining the information available, NVIDIA has determined that the issue may involve an interaction between select combinations of the graphics card, system, monitor, other electronic components and the application which creates noise or signal interference.

If you are experiencing this issue on a GeForce FX 5900 or GeForce FX 5900 Ultra card, you can download this driver fix (9.28 MB). It is available on our affiliate sites:

http://www.nvnews.net/files/drivers/nvidia/45.33_xp.zip


If you experience any other issues - please email us at support@nvidia.com.

This is pretty unreal. I just voted for the "never" option in the poll asking when/if nVidia would actually address this issue.

I don't know what to say, but the driver update has FIXED the flickering. No more.
