    All forgiven.
    But caution of the Auto Detect button in "Clock Frequencies", it suggested 500/1000 for my poor old GF4!
    BTW I don't think the picture really shows a hummer, looks more like Mercedes G to me...

    You don't notice a performance boost because these are supposed to be quality drivers...

    not a major performance decrease just a slight one you will pry lose 1-2000 3d marks and maybe a few fps.

    Overall, the StarStorm Drivers are superior. Unfortunatly, I did not keep my benchmark results for my nVidia 45.23s.

    Hope this helps. :megaman:

    Just a quick Question:

    Which settings in the menus are we allowed to change i.e am i allowed to change the AF settings, the image quality settings or will these reverse the changes u made.

    Just ran UT2003bench and these give me a 15 fps increase over the original 45.23 set, so i sticking with this set.

    Gonna test with a few more games.


    Great work.
