I honestly find it hard to believe you're a performance user if you havn't had at least one issue with it since it came out.
My raid failed twice because of Intel's drivers, and in June they released new ones that I have used without issue. and I don't remember stating that I had no problems.
And it is nVidia look at how ****ty their driver is they had 9 months before the operating system was released to make a half decent driver, Ati did it... why did nVidia have so much trouble. Even now with the 163.15's using HDMI on there cards screws up horribly I have a buddy doing that and its been pissing him off from day 1.
My computer with the exception of my RAID failing a twice has run great I run games from Fallout 1, all the way to Advanced Warfighter 2 (I say that one because it is quite demanding, but I do have many other demanding games)
All of my software runs like photoshop and 3dmark06, rendering is speedy.
And I heard crossfire ran great, even from release date, because remember that for once Ati had some competency and released decent drivers, even though there latest ones are kinda sucky. at least we Ati users can just go back to 7.2's and have everything run fine again.
What do nVidia users do... apart from go back to Xp, I have been watching every nVidia release and the list of problems does not seem to get shorter. they will fix 1 problem and get 3 more..
Vista X64 is a great OS those who are just ignorant not to see it need to pull there heads out of the sand. Xp had WAY more problems when it came out, I remember the first time I went to install it, it blue-screened DURING the install and if you go back to when Xp came out read the reviews and articles everybody hated it. so why is it so coveted now?, and didn't microsoft boast 40 millions sales the other week, can the support of 40 million people mean that the OS has failed, or that it's crappy... thats more people that the population of Canada.
