    are you serious?? If I found out that Nvidia was spending their very valuable time trying to get Itunes to run better, which shouldn't even be USED on a PC, I would go on a frigging rampage.. you can wait your turn.. Itunes is the least of their problems right now.. wth would you use Itunes for anyways?? Oh right.. you have an ipod and its too stupid to work with any other software.. right, I forgot.

    I have a 7950 GX2, and I believe that when I enable Multi-GPU mode, some games act slower in SLI than they did in single. Flipping through the aero videos seems to be where I can point it out the easiest.

    if he was being sarcastic, you can pass over the dunce cap.
    Just sumtimes on these forums you catch some pretty ridiculous posts, and its tough to tell which are legit..
    sarcasm doesn't translate well when you type it out :)

    Yes, I am serious. And I don't know why I am using iTunes anymore, it's a slow startup piece of crap on Windows anyway. I gave my ipod away to my girlfriend so there is no use anyway :p Back to Winamp.

    I'm still pissed off at these drivers, I get the feeling I have to wait another month for a chance of my problems maybe getting fixed but probably not.

    I just don't feel like installing XP again but I'm getting a bit tired with Vista this way.

    Anyone else have an issue with these drivers where ntune shows the gpu and memory clocks to be at 0. Also atitool shows both clocks to be 0 and I cannot change the clocks with either tool.

    Oblivion seems a little faster outdoors judging by fraps (still crappy on a 7900 tho.) Better than the 101's IMO but still far from complete. Getting a 7950 GX2 from a buddy, can't wait for the list of issues. Running XP64.

    Anything below 8xxx series don't have any benefit from this driver and newer ones. Don't bother. I've made many tests with differents games, none increased performance. I'm using WINXP SP2.

    These drivers are horrible. They play some games flawlessly but on my rig BF2142 freezes, hard lock, after less than 15 minutes of play time. WEAK.

    I got like 15fps boost with those drivers in cs:s but during gun fights it sometimes goes down to 10-15 fps as it did on 165s , never had those problems in xp.
    I am running 6800gt

    Haha nevermind. This driver slows down Infernal so much it's not even funny. Back to the 100.95.
