    I have tried the WDDM drivers included with Vista, the 96.85 drivers for vista from nvidia's website, and the 93.71 drivers for XPMCE.

    In any game such as Half-Life2 or the Supreme Commander Beta, my screen is flickering like crazy. In supreme commander the buttons on the main menu work and can be seen fine, but any textures/backgrounds are flickered and strecthed.

    In HL2, I can play the game but it bugs out like crazy with textures. Game "plays" fine, but looks insane.

    Same thing with Futuremark2006.. textures flicker constantly.

    Is this a known issure or is something just off with my system?

    Vista Build 6000

    RTHDMIBL (real time hdr ibl) works flawlessly in windowed or fullscreen mode. Windows freebie Games like Chess Titans work fine too.

    it sounds like a driver issue to me, cause ur system is way more than capable of running vista

    vista runs fine, 5.2 overall rating, 5.5 graphics rating, everything else is 5.9 (the cap)

    Do these games run fine for other people with vista 6000?

    I had this problem with some games, I was thinking my card was damage but I update to the latest vista driver released by Nvidia and this fixed all my problems with textures and screen flickering.

    I hope Vista drivers get more mature this next month or in January

    argh what could be causing this?

    all the vista screen savers run fine.

    it seems that just games get ****ed up.
