    No artifacts. Only when I play games (3d) the graphics mess up, and eventually crash the game. When I play Football manager 2011 using 2d match engine, there are no problems.

    ok. did you try disabled triple buffer (nv control panel or other program tool) and can you prevent crash/bsod?

    triple buffer enabled or geforce driver issue may cause bsod crash/freeze.

    Triple buffer has been disabled all along.

    Nonsense. Absolute nonsense. Give it a rest with the false information. It helps nobody.

    Theres a nice easy guide over in one of the other sub forums, i believe in the Intel section that should get you going no problem!

    LOL! Yeah, the amount of times we here "oh my friend is a PC genius!" in the computer industry. I hear it every day, and 99% of the time they know diddle squat.

    Triple buffering will not hurt graphics memory. Accept it or don't, either way you're wrong. End of discussion.

    triple buffer enabled (nv cp or d3d overrider) only may damage to vram (during long time = +-1 year or more after since new card) or cause bsod/freeze (any time). the driver issue (beta is very probably) may cause bsod/freeze. ;)
