That's not why I'm posting.... What I'm wondering is I've read in other parts of this thread that this "Lucid Virtu" thing this motherboard says it supports here on the motherboard box... is supposed to drastically increase frame rates in games?
Well the problem is I don't think I have it installed. I popped in the driver DVD that came with it in the box and clicked "install all" and it ran everything, but I don't see this Lucid Virtu anywhere under program folders in start menu, and I don't know what it is and how to know if I've enabled it or it's running or not or what?
Could someone please give me some information on this? Some information about my build is below:
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H Motherboard
Intel Core i5-3450S Ivy Bridge 2.8GHz processor
2 x Intel Hyper-X DDR3-1600 8 GB (2 x 4GB)
4 x Western Digital WD1600AAJS 160 GB, 7200 RPM, 8mb buffer, SATA-II, RAID-0 using onboard Intel raid.
Cooler Master 700 watt single-rail power supply.
XFX Radeon HD 7770 FX-777A-ZDSC - Black Edition: Super Overclocked version
Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
I'm not a noob, I've been building PC's for myself since my 486 in 1994, just this is my first Ivy Bridge system, and I jumped over sandy bridge and upgraded directly from i7-920 x59 system to a Z77 Ivy Bridge system, and I've never heard of this "Lucid Virtu" thing on motherboards before.
I chose this motherboard because it had everything I wanted and it was less than $200. Things I was looking for in my new system: Run two pci-express 3.0 video cards in Cross-fire (later I'll add a second 7770, not currently with this build) at at-least 8x8x on both. (lots of z77 motherboards I looked at ran one at 8x and the other at 4x). It has a 3rd pci-e slot @ PCI-e 2.1 for a nvidia video card for phys-X later (even if it is 4x speed), and it has a PCI slot, an optical audio port on board, and has onboard intel ICH10R raid.
So... it looked like everything I wanted and it wasn't expensive (I paid $149.99 for it on newegg), so, win. I just need to figure out all the quirks on it. I've only owned it about a month now.

Actually before just installing from the DVD blindly, I have spent time and went to look around the internet. I've compared what's on the website(s) to what's on the DVD for each and every driver, and NONE of them are updated yet. Neither are there any new drivers on the intel website, nor the via or realtek websites. So installing from the DVD right now = fine. I did however update the bios from gigabyte website.

That's very rude to just stamp someone a noob like that, and not a very good way to get anyone to come back to this website for assistance in the future.

And I would like some information on exactly what Virtu MVP -ACTUALLY DOES- before installing it please. Does it increase frame rates in games? or does it do something else that I may not even need/want at all? I have the onboard graphics disabled currently because of my AMD video card. Could someone tell me what possible benefit (if any at all) having the onboard intel graphics enabled while using my dedicated video card would be?

I tried that and still no video to my monitor from the card. I can tell that my computer booted into Win7 because of the OS sound but I can't tell visually because the onchip graphics is now disabled - I had moved the HDMI cable over to the board and the monitor says 'no signal.' I had to clear my CMOS so that the onchip graphics would be enabled again. I also tried changing the 'init display first' from auto to PEG while disabling the onchip graphics and still nothing from the card - the monitor states that there is no signal detected. I should state that I know the new card is getting power because both fans are running on it. Here's my system layout if it helps:

Lucid mvp helps the tearing effect you get once your framerates go over your screens refresh rate. Its supposed to give you a smoother gaming experience. Also you get some nice benchmark scores in 3Dmark 11 and Vantage. Its worth a try see if you can get the latest version to work

Which bios version you using on mobo? also could you check does your board have the purple capacitors on it, & no gap between the memory slots. Its possible your 660ti is so new and your bios dont quite recognise it yet. It should detect the vga card even if left on auto in bios or PEG. Just dont plug in 2 cables use only 1 x HDMI or DVI

Just because site has update drivers don't always mean they are better. I agree that your statment was very rude and noobish.
