    when it works its good but i keep getting this damn error i think it might be up to my ram i think that my ram is holding back my cpu aswell so i might just change from 3gb or random cheapo crap to OCZ PC2-6400 Gold Edition i mean if it lets me play games i will just have to drop the extra gig possibly i can sell the other stick to get a new stick

    anyway what the hell is with all these leaked drivers?

    Hmmm try them or no ...

    I think I may make the switch over to Vista 64 now, I will try these when I do over the week.

    i didnt mod the ini file and it recognised my 8800gt fine and came up as correct drivers

    got a problem tho with that damn display driver error well i underclocked my ram by half and its stable but every time i revert to an old driver even after safe mode and use driver sweeper it still does the display driver error if not underclocked
    crysis dosnt work but half life 2 ep 2 everything max at 1200x1000 aa af full 16x goes from max 140fps to 50fps and averages about 90fps by just looking at fraps counter

    good drivers tho if you can get em to work
