Default Re: Nvidia Geforce 6800 GS Drivers

Forceware is just drivers.. I'm using a 6800 GS right now, I've never experienced the problems you have, the drivers that came with the card worked perfectly fine and I'm still using them now, granted, their out of date.

Which is what I did when I first got my card, and everything was fine.

It looks as if ingame the resolution is too big... and i've tried changing that down and it just remains the same size.

Guys, I have tried plenty of games now.

The drivers all install fine... but yet the graphics on all of them look really bad.

I know when the drivers aren't installed when you even try to move a window screen its jumpy... that's not the case here.

I don't think so... but since I changed motherboards it now has my tv card directly below it...

I think I just need to get different drivers and try them out.

Any ideas?

Hmm, I just bought this motherboard... I might try taking out the tv card and seeing if that fixes the problem.

If it does... I'll see if I can change motherboards... hopefully

I'll keep you posted.

I've got a fan blowing air directly into it though.
