Cool Bodomite,
That's the exact one I would have got if I were you...and its the same one Baracade980 already has and he seems pretty happy with it. You'll have to let us know how everything turns out when you get the card installed and try some games.

Oh and I am!

It is a great card man... best for a PCI in my opinion. You might expect it a little early though, my shipping took a day less than they said! Just make sure you follow the insructions and if you got any q's about it give me a PM so I can help you.

oh bodomite, guess I shoulda explained that eh? I use the 66.93 drivers (latest version). ForceWare is this thing you can get from NVidia that 'forces' your card to go with older drivers if you want them to, because some games work better with them.

Actually, I have the ForceWare program, but I rarely use it.

I think the simplest explanation is that "Forceware" is just the name nvidia gives their driver set...plus nvidia includes some extra features in it to control your video out port and it also has some features that can force certain graphic settings in your games (such as antialiasing or anisotropic filtering). I'm sure there is other stuff inside forceware that I don't know about and don't use. Basically as Baracade980 said...just go to nvidia.com and download the latest forceware drivers 66.93 when you get your card installed. I use the latest 66.93 drivers for my geforce 6800 as well and haven't had any problems and my brother uses that version for his geforce 5700LE AGP and has had no issues either.

Well, ForceWare is pretty much forcing a perticular driver from what I understand. It also gives control of other stuff (mentioned above). You can go to pre-determind settings for games that NVidia thinks is the best. I don't use them though, for anything. I pretty much keep everything on the latest driver, with application controlled settings. So, it varies from game to game what special settings I use... but as far as forcing a driver, I don't.
