    That's the think Cookie, I am not having any issues with the Nvidia cards at all, just the AMD drivers will not install. After doing a complete cleaning of all video drivers and registry entries, I installed my GTX460 Nvidia and installed the drivers without issue at all. :confused:

    Definitely sounds like it's time to install Windows from scratch on another HD and see how it goes. There's no way round it sometimes. :ohwell:

    Yea I think your right man. I am in the process of backing up some important folders and programs, and plan on doing just that :rockout:It will probably run a lot faster anyhow. :laugh:
