It's very important too if using Win8 that you let windows completely install the "standard" driver that it automatically installs. Then you must restart before doing anything else, as the restart will ensure that it has installed all the way. Then install your driver of choice without doing anything else.

After playing with Win8 for a while trying to get drivers to work with my Quad 580's, I have to say avoid it at all cost if using more than 2 GPU's.

o_O all I did after multiple win 8 installs on two machines. was after installing win 8. just install nvidia drivers and it makes you reboot. and done. not sure how quad would effect a driver install, but hmm. interesting

It's two issues actually. The first being Windows installing it's own drivers while you are trying to install yours. The second for Quads is that it just doesn't like them period. I couldn't get it to launch games with the latest driver. Switch back to Win7 runs like a champ. Hate Win8 now..

Yeah that doesn't make sense. win 8 has everything it needs to run and display by the time it goes through the "setting up windows for you" and has mini tutorial. Even if windows is still installing generic driver for anything, you should wait till it's done before installing real driver. either way doesn't make sense.

I'd never go back to 7 personally. Seems so out of date for me now tongue.gif

the post in that thread is before nvidia changed way uninstall and updating drivers work.


Oh, thank you, I don't believe for a second it is THAT contrived to switch drivers... touching registry and all that crap is abolished for a damn reason.
unless you mean Nvidia -> Nvidia, i meant Nvidia -> AMD.

Win 7 x64 Home. Not going to Win 8, not now, not ever. If there's a next OS, it's either a stable Steam Ubuntu or if m$ ever comes back to their senses, a better performing Win 9 with Win 7 sensibilities.

To me i honestly only noticed the Metro. And whilst i had it i thought it was great but then when i reverted back to Win 7 and found less hassle and a lot of support for the programs i wanted use.

My Burson DAC & Razer Nostromo took me half a day to get to install and the strike 7 keyboard never installed properly! I wasted a day and a half and even took my cpu tower into the shopping centre where i got the keyboard so they could have a crack. With Win 7 no compatibility issues no running in xp, win 7 modes etc. Straight up bang they worked. I think windows 8 will be great but not for another year or so. Dont get me wrong there are some features i liked.

@iAEDAs - I will get my 1440p proof pic posted today once I get home (too busy with other projects and enjoying the awesomeness that is 1440P)


Question for anyone running 680 4gb versions in 3 way SLI or more, how is your performance on games like Fat Far Cry 3 / Metro 2033?

I have a single 690 which is more than what I need but I don't like the look of a single card in the case. I have pre-ordered some uber stupid cards from amazon and was in every comparison that I read I could not find number for 680 4GB 3 way sli benchmarks.

If the numbers are the same as 2 of the bad boys pictured below then I think I will stick with them.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Thanks for your answers guys.
