Thread Starter 
i downloaded (from nvidia's website) the lost watch II screen saver. i understand its designed for an 8800 (or 8600?) GT video card. but er... shouldnt it run like a beast on my GTS 450? or am i missing something here. i mean seriously, back the fun bus up here. 8.3 FPS!? D:

The GTS 450 is actually a rebranded and power-sipping version of the 8800GT and as such it won't be much faster. If the 8800GT is the minimum requirement, than it is possible for the s/s to be pretty slow as minimum hardware is usually quite optimistic. If that was supposed to run on a 8600GT than you may have some driver issues in th sense that app was written for an older driver and the new driver doesn't like the app that much.
