    Ok either 2 things.

    Either my 7800GTX is ****, or Fear is ****.

    I can't run soft shadows, or AA, withou major decrease in FPS.

    Running 1600x1200, NO AA, 16xAF and no Soft shadows, i get this:

    In game, the frames are all over the place, basically unplayable.

    Anyone here with 6800nu tried these drivers? If so are they any good as in terms of image quality and performance.

    Fear is heavy man. Lower to 1280/960, all maxx, 2AA/4AF. That is playable for me. But only just;)

    Somehow these drivers don't like Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition Service Pack 1? Got a speed decrease in AquaMark3 here. Under Windows XP Service Pack 2, I got the expected speed increase though. Confusing.

    Oh well, keeping a Windows 2003 solution just for gaming in a machine ain't exactly brilliant anyways, so I might as well get rid of it soon :(

    What do you think you have there, a 7800 ultra extra or something:rolleyes:

    With that rig you are stuck at 1024x768 4x af no aa no soft shadows and no volumetric lights;)

    You want more get another 7800:p

    Like uploader said, FEAR is the latest and greatest in game engines and is demanding as hell. These drivers only add about 5fps so thats not going to help you either.

    Try close some running tasks in background and close Anti-Virus program etc...

    mine running 14 processes while play games no plm whatever so.

    Always check with task manager BEFORE you play games or benchmark.

    BTW, Sometimes stuipd ppl play games with heavy tasks running in background EVEN running anti-virus program same time fool. :rolleyes:

    Peace

    Yeah, try lowering your resolution in FEAR. I'm running 1024x768@32bit, Maximum settings, Soft Shadows on, 4x FSAA and 16x AF and it runs great. I get something like 130 average fps in the performance demo.

    Dominator you do not get 130 fps with a Single GTX at 1024*768 4xaa 16xAF. Maybe 130fps max but no way avg. Avg for a single GTX at those settings would be around 35-40fps

    The max resolution available in the graphics settings of FEAR is 1024x768 where do you guys set the higher resolutions?

    Or does the game enable the higher resolutions depending on the vid card you have (mine's a 6800 ultra)?

    I realize this is off topic, but NICE RAM palm521. It is quite hard to get those BH-5 modules these days! If you ever want to sell look me up!

    For those who are not able to install these drivers for their AGP 6800LE have to add two lines in their inf:

    Under [NVIDIA.Mfg]

    %NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0042.1% = nv4_NV3x, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0042


    And under ; Localizable Strings

    NVIDIA_NV40.DEV_0042.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800 LE"


    Make these changes & then try to install.
