I should have been clearer. I'd guess the problem is from a combination of the game and the video card, with the fault mostly falling on the fact that RAGE is a older game and may have issue's with the newer nvidia cards.

Take this with a grain of salt as it's all speculation.


BTW, fill in your system specs in your "user CP", let us know exactly what your working with

Ok , tried out the "try a different cable , monitor , adapter" strategy and it turned out that with my little "pliers in the system while powered on scheme" i damaged the DVI to VGA adapter , changed it and all is good and running !

And yeah , i edited my CP :)

Just an update , the card is AWESOME , quiet and a beast , RAGE runs at a 60+ fps stable , the card boosts itself up to 1071MHZ!!! Without any OC from my part! I don't think i will have to OC it at all :D!!!
