Sounds like its better to use 1 GTX right now than SLI.

Yeah, that sums it up OWA, shadows flash on and off all over the place, it's pretty screwed up when using sli.

Star Wars : Knights of the Old Republic

Crashes after all the logos, right where main menu would load. Can hear a few notes of the menu music then application stops.

Only tested with 97.44 so far. Anyone else with this game want to give it a try?

Try with an older set, 97.28 or 97.02

This seems to be most driver bug ridden video card in a long time. I got the 7900GT when it first came out, and although the card itself was a POS "3 RMAs for me" the drivers worked well. I love my 8800GTS, I just wish that they fix these bugs soon. I want to be able to play United Offensive, and I also want to get the newest Splinter Cell as well.

Thief 3 has some flashing from time to time. Hard to grab a screen for it. Moderate issue.

Tried with 96.89 and it still happened, and now after it happens any application I close goes to 99% cpu usage till I end task, time to format.

Don't bother formatting. I've done it twice since getting the card just to make sure it wasn't me hosing something up. I'm still having that issue.

HDR+AA in some of the other titles would be nice also (SCCT, Far Cry, etc.).

I agree but I think that is much as NVs responsibility as the manufacturer to patch the games and add the ability.

Yeah, I guess you're right. I hope between them they're able to do it though. I realize the titles are fairly old but with Far Cry and SCCT at least, they still look great even compared to some of the newer titles. So, I hope they don't abandon it even though they got bigger and better things they're working on.
