IMO it has to do with the drivers or directx 9.0c, because I have experienced these rebooting problems in some games with many newer driver versions.

I NEVER have this happen with 53.03. Not in the past with dx 9.0b, and not even now with 9.0c. The older drivers don't look as good (they don't support dx9.0c) but at least they don't crash

I tried the second track from the left, BSOD. Since then, the game is no longer on my HD. hehe...

Doom3 and FarCry don't want me to get rid of the 70.41's. BFV likes them as well. Sorry Flatout, I'll check you out later.

Lol.... it can't be the 70.41s because that is what I am running right now and it runs flawlessly on my 6800 Ultra...

Guess you're the lucky one...

Ok since it work so good for you, explain why 70.41 crash for me and 53.03 do not. Please, I would like to know oh great one.

I was laughing at SH64's message... but I don't know why 70.41s don't work for others... it might be a problem on pre-6 series GF cards... no idea.

Got a BFG GeForce 6800 GT OC bud Even clocked my rig to default and still no go. Pushed my 2.8 back up to 3.5 and no probs in Doom3, BFV, MoH:PA, Leisure Suite Larry: Magna Cum Laude, Sims 2 or FartCry. So it doesn't appear to be happening in the more demanding games, just Flatout.

I can't stop playing the demo. I can't wait for the full thing. The game is so incredible. The novelty of driving backwards during the races has started to wear off, so I had my first "real" race. So incredible.

Another high point aside from the amazing graphics and damage modeling is the sound! The engines sound lame, but when there's drivers screaming and all eight cars hitting each other at the same time, amazing.

I'm foaming at the mouth

I can play for about 30 sec, then my computer reboots and my Logitech Gamepad keeps on vibrating.
