    GTX285... not uplocking?

    I am almost convinced that this is a software issue after this latest development. I just had one of those "black-outs", but this time I minimized the game immediately after it happened and there was a warning message by my taskbar saying "Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered."...

    GTX285... not uplocking?

    Thanks, but this happens while playing modern and demanding games. EDIT: I set "Prefer maximum performance" in NVIDIA Control Panel, but it didn't help: the card is still running at 2D clocks even when playing Crysis and such.

    GTX285... not uplocking?

    Sometimes, when playing a game(any game, really), the screen goes dark for a couple of seconds. After it goes back to normal, there is a pretty sharp drop in FPS. The reason for this? The GPU starts to run at 2D clock speeds. The only fix I found is to restart the PC. I'm running Windows 7...

    Good to know that the 5870 is rocking faces.

    Please recommend a video card....

    At that kind of resolution, the P4 will bottleneck those games like hell. Anything over 7600GT would probably be a waste.

    Photorealistic Games – By 2024?

    I don't think that 2024 is an unfair estimate, but I believe it it will take a while longer.

    Why no Vsync?

    I always have vsync turned off because it causes considerable input lag for me. I barely ever even notice tearing, and when I do, it doesn't really bother me. The only game I play with vsync on is Braid. I don't know, that game just feels better with it on. I also don't like sacrificing my fps.

    My 920 i7 keeps reverting to 142 clock speed.

    And so the plot thickens. Can someone explain this to me?

    My 920 i7 keeps reverting to 142 clock speed.

    Well, I have an access to a CD or a USB Flash thingy, but I have no idea how to do it.

    Well, the file isn't working apparently. I extracted the files(there are three), but when I try to open any of them, it says "Blabla has stopped working, Windows will close the program blabla". :( EDIT: It's a self-extracting archive.
