I finally moved all the way over to Vista 64bit btw, and my experience is the same as nekrosoft13's so far. Pretty sweet and stable.

Hopefully you'll find it the same.
Yeah other than the 101.41 drivers not supporting SLI Vista 64bit with 4Gb of RAM it's gone smoothly, just waiting on Nvidia to sort that little gem out

CybrSage, good to see you outside P&R!

Yup, ltobias trick seems to be helping a lot of folks, I didn't want it to get lost in the shuffle.

If you play with profiles at all tomb18 posted another little gem here.

Have fun Bro!

It's the only reason I don't feel badly about not running SLI anymore. Maybe I'm overly optimistic Princess, but I see this as a business deal...

- Nvidia has to produce. ATI stole the crown before...they could do it again.

That's ridiculous! Magic, witchcraft, alchemy, devil worship; none of these things will do anything. It's all hocus pocus and superstition. It certainly won't raise your FPS in any game.

That "/3GB switch" should have no effect on 32-bit versions of Vista. The kernel address table is no longer a fixed size in Vista, and the memory manager will adjust it based on actual usage.

However, setting the "supports >2GB user space" switch may actually have an effect, especially if the crash is caused by a problem with the Nvidia driver not supporting the larger user space (or smaller kernel space) correctly.
