    Today I upgraded my videocard from a Geforce 9600GT to a MSI GeForce GTX 460 Cyclone OC (1GB). Before installing the new card I uninstalled the drivers and after installing the card I installed the drivers again, being the 260.99 from Nvidia.
    What strikes me is that when I start Dirt 2, I see the Dirt 2 logo for a short while and then the screen goes black for about 10-15 second.After that I get the intro of AMD etc and the game loads and everything goes fine. So no real problem. But with my "old" card I didn't have that black screen. After the Dirt 2 logo I immediately got the intro movies and with "Enter" a few times the game loaded subsequently.
    Is this "black screen" normal ? If not how can I avoid that ?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    It's because you are running it in DX11 now. Don't know why it should do that though.
