...ehh... :-l

dude, um, I know he was trying to help. I'm not "going bitching" (though that sounds like fun... me and a couple friends and a big bottle of jager, and a list of ppl to bitch at )

Never before have I heard anything like he said about Forceware drivers, so I felt privy to ask...

so then rage... what do you say they are? Just so we can actually figure out what they are.

And I gathered my info from this board actually, and the NVidia page. So if it IS something else... please share, because I'd like to know what it is too if I'm getting it wrong.

(just so there aren't any arguments, no offence this whole thing too.)

Just to jump in here...Forceware is just what Nvidia calls their drivers. And like I mentioned before, they bundle some extra features in with the drivers and give you some settings that you can change which will force certain graphics settings in your games...but there isn't anything in forceware that forces certain games to use an older driver or anything. You can just leave everything in the forceware driver settings set to "application controlled" which is the default setting...this just lets the graphics settings in the actual games control everything which sometimes avoids problems depending on the game. Many people out there really have no need to go into the forceware driver settings at all actually. Hopefully this clears up any confusion...this type of stuff can easily get confusing.

Oh, that sucks. I've been curious to see how this turns out. Baracade980 is happy with this card and if you are too then I think my friend will jump on board and buy one for himself too since he's been on the edge of buying one for his non-agp system. Hopefully you'll get it Wednesday then...otherwise I probably will be out of town from Thursday until the beginning of next week and won't get to hear how everything went and won't be able to help if something goes wrong. Although I'm sure Baracade980 can help since he already has the card if there is a problem.

No, I don't think you should have to re-install your games typically. I would say that if you have problems with a specific game after installing the card then you might want to try uninstalling the game, delete any folders left by it, and then reinstall the game...but normally that is not necessary. Maybe someone else here has some experiences with respect to this and can give you more info.

Yeah, the only reason why i said this was because i had a lot of trouble a while ago with a mx440 in my other computer, apon opening counterstrike it would freeze everytime, same with all video files, and all other 3d consuming applications, so I tried reinstalling everything cause i thought i was suppose to do that first. Thanks its about 10:00 here and the fedex guy doesnt usually come till about 11.
