So I have an 8800 GTS (validation). I've run and rerun Driver Sweeper in safe mode, uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers using the device manager, and even tried using the nvidia uninstall app in the 'Program and Features' section of the Control Panel. Each time I'll get down to a driver that was signed in roughly June of '06 with a driver version of ~6.6000.16389 (off the top of my head). when I reinstall though I get this:

Half of windows will tell me I have an 8800GTS and the other half will tell me I have a 7900GT. Why?

no ideas? I checked dxdiag and the same confusion appears in the display tab. It calls my card a 7900 GT/GTO but says my chip type is an 8800 GTS .

I also have to add that in the interim between the 7900 and the 8800 I was using a 660GT so my actial card progression was like this:
7900GT -> 6600GT -> 8800GTS
