    Sure thing :)

    It's not constantly at 90, that's a peak (had to spend a minute looking around at the sky to get the screeny). Average is usually around 60-70, drops as low as 45 occasionally.

    The 90% is GPU usage, not fan speed.

    I have the film grain effect turned off because I don't like it, don't know if that makes a difference? Also vsync is forced off in nvcontrol panel and off in game...

    Does forcing AA work in ME1? Never actually tried (as you can see from the screeny) :p

    I remember there being a problem with the physx in the game.
    The problem started at the part where a bunch of cops started shooting through the glass at you and continued through the rest of the game.
    Disabling physx at that point made the game run smooth again.
    I believe it was later fixed with a patch, though I could be wrong about that.

    700MHz isn't that fast for a 9800GT is it (or has he edited his specs)? My GTX+ runs at 745MHz out of the box :p

    You are Great a Hunter. My frames rates now show around 120.
    Thanks for the tip mate.

    But I just hope the flickering does not come in this.

    They certainly seem to be better for GTX4xx and up. I've seen a fair few people with issues on older cards.

    I have a weird issue with the current Afterburner beta, and these drivers (and the 265.90's) as when I set profiles for 2D and 3D clocks it crashes the drivers when it switch from the 2 modes, any ideas?

    Yep, works here as well. But this doesn't work in ME2. The game won't start if i do the modifications to the .ini file. Which is sad.

    ohh that calms me down.
    I was really pissed of at that moment.
    Guess I turn off the physx for that moment

    Hi all good people ...

    I just wanted to share this with you all ...

    My GTX 480 has been stuttering since i got it ( everything under 60 FPS )

    I almost gave up on this card but then i read a post in another forum last week.
    They where discussin whether to turn off Hyper Threading or not, and some claimed it would produce smoother gameplay i it was off ( Windows 7 - 32 / 64 Bit ).

    So i tried this, and it changed everything for me on my system ;0)
    The games run ALOT smoother for me EVEN at 60 FPS and under ....

    Hope this will help some off you with stuttering in games ... ;0)
