    Do you not want to edit the title so that we know it's "out for grabs?"

    Sure, I can do that.

    I have posted links in the thread but if that's the norm I guess I'll follow suit :).

    Some intitial testing;

    [​IMG]

    Wow.. the text in the image scaled badly... might have to fix it.[edit]fixed

    It says the minimum fps was 7.6 but I was watching the whole way through and it was actually 32 fps, the 7.6 must have occurred just before it stopped.

    I was not getting any nasty hitching or stuttering and I had all my background programs running (Rivatuner, Logitech LCD display, fraps, etc) and Aero was also running in Win 7 64.

    At last. Hopefully now we can finally see what the 480's can do in surround. Not interested in 3d was crap when I had had it so I can only imagine it will be three times worse with three screens.

    What do you do, step by step to cause this to happen from a fresh driver install?

    No more random fps drops with my 275 - and after clean install - no problems with profiles.

    rofl!

    I have edited some profiles and they have not disappeared... yet :p

    If you need to get them back you can use the 'Geforce_SLI_Profile_Tool.exe'.

    1. Create an empty text file called 'NVIDIA Profiles.txt'

    2. Run the Geforce_SLI_Profile_Tool.exe

    3. Select 'Import SLI Profiles' and browse to your empty file

    4. Open the Nvidia control panel and check that they have been restored.

    Worked for me anyway...

    For example I choose NFS shift profile and I change SLI rendering mode ,apply then close NVCP,open it up again and some game profiles are gone.

    my profiles never dissapear either with any of 257+ drivers. win 7 64bit., but i use driver cleaner.net.

    alos use the sli tool to change compatibility flags for unreal 3 engine games.

    thsese seem to have fixed the l4d 2 framerate fluctuations and weird mouse skip.

    havent tested other games yet.
