Freddy31, is that on the 100.xx drivers too ?
It can be cured by running water 2, but TBH that isn't why we buy these cards, I wish NV would pull their fingers from their butts and get a proper driver team sorted and punching out quality WHQL drivers monthly like some others

I sold my 8800's due to the driver issues, and was waiting for R600, but I may have shot myself in the foot now thats been put back till god knows when

If NV bring out a 8900GTX with decent clockspeeds before any official R600 anouncement, I think I would go for it regardless.
But it seems even that isn't on the cards now ...

Please sort your drivers out NV

Playing through far cry again, and i think ive got what people call shimmering. When i walk or move, things look blurry. Ive not noticed it in any other games. The same thing made me get rid of a 7950 GX2.

Is this still a problem with nvidia cards, it's really noticeable.

Can i get rid of it????????

Do you have high quality on in the drivers?

96.89 may work best. To me it seems like it's the very best driver and has very few problems.

Something strange started happening w/ drivers after that, and I really don't know what code they trimmed from the drivers after 96.89, but they really cut a lot of good stuff out.

Yes, i have high quality on, and clamp LOD on as well.

Looks like crap, but then why am i surprised, it's nvidia. The longer i have it, the more i think i should of waited for ATI.

Same here, just rolled back from the beta 100's, I was getting random level crashes. I still can't believe how good this game looks.

This is a game error and not a Nvidia/driver error. The same happens on ATI hardware.

No matter what drivers I use on XP - after a day or two, LOD always goes back to Allow. I have to check this before I run every game. Really frustrating.
