Nice Is that stock cooling?
Boy do I feel like a complete idiot. I was fed up with the crashing/rebooting and was ready to return my card for an MSI model. I went to take out the card and noticed I DID NOT HAVE THE POWER CABLE PLUGGED INTO THE CARD!!!! Man I feel stupid. The card runs like a dream now. I ran 3Dmark03 and got a 5527 score using the 66.97 drivers. I've got 1gig of Crucial PC2100 memory. Would PC3200 memory be better or should I just buy another stick of 512 pc2100?
Thanks, it's the stock 1st design cooler (the one with the copper plate) with the cover plate removed and a 120mm fan blowing on it.
Now that you are done hijacking this thread can we get back to the real problem please?
do not mix ram. check with you Motherboad manufacturer for compatable ram. If you can run pc3200 its alot faster.
How is this a hijacking???????
I was having problems with my XFX 6600gt and came to the point where I thought the issue laid with the drivers I was running??
Is this thread not about drivers????????????????????
Judging by some of your previous posts, you must not be a very happy person.
Yes, spending $240 bucks on a graphics card that does work as advertised makes me angry.
My last post was to remind people there is a real issue here, not just people forgetting to hook up the extra power connector which, thanks to you, half the people reading this thread will think is the problem.
I just want my card to work so I can have fun and play games. Is that so horrible?
Killgore have you treid the new 71.20 drivers? Also there is a newer set now the 71.22.
let us know if they help.
I've tried both 71.20 and 71.22- neither show an improvement over the best drivers I've tried, which is 66.93- actually, with 71.22, the water in HL2 is a lovely yellow tint! Going back to 66.93..
Also, with both 71.20 and .22, my agp aperture is listed as 1 for GPU, chipset, OS and Optimal! That's a joke!!
Tried both 71.20 and 71.22 with no change in performance.
virgilr, in 71.22 and 71.20 my agp aperature is also listed as "1" for everything.
Change your AGP aperature in your system bios.
Anyone tried the 71.24 BETA???
Good thing I ordered an XFX 6800 instead of a 6600GT.
Haven't had any problems.
Wish I could help.
Duke, that's the point- In whatever driver, I'm not seeing the AGP aperture reflected properly! When I "change it in the bios", it doesn't change in the driver panel- with 66.93, both chipset and OS show the agp aperture at 32, regardless of what I set in the bios. I think I'll actually take the time to put my 5900XT back in and see if any of this changes... what a huge waste of time, I swear nvidia better get this straightened out!
i was having the same performance issues. i found that using the refresh rate overide settings in the drivers was causing it. i disabled that and used the refresh rate overide in rivatuner. doubled my performance. hope this helps
I've left the refresh rate override to "application controls refresh rate"- but I'll give it a go!
