    I have been testing out drivers for the XFX 6800 XT 256 DDR3 card and with the newest ones the card chokes bad but if you go pre 1XX.XX series it gets alot better. if anyone has a 6800XT with good drivers let me know which ones they are. I tried the legendary 77.77 drivers but i guess that was before this cards time.

    I also had found that the latest drivers for my 6600GT was terrible and just made the card crash in games, i went back to 185.XX or even 178.XX and the card ran great after that.

    The new one at nvidia is 196.21 that is the one you tried?
    If so then i don't know all i know is the last one i try on my old 7600gs was 185. or 189. & it worked fine.

    EDIT: Just reread the thread title... it's AGP did you install the chipset/gart driver?
