So I have a GTX 260 in my posession and now I am overclocking it - Page 6

post #51 of 109
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have an idea as to why I cannot get any drivers other than the ones that came on my disc to work? BFG's website has a 177.35 for the GT2x cards but it does not work properly. It still shows that I have no Dx10 and will not let me do any gaming applications.

*EDIT* I'm trying to overclock it right now. I am at 650 core/1427 shaders/1057 memory.

I also wanted to add that I had to remove my HDD from the middle bay of my Antec P182 because the card would not fit in the top slot with the HDD installed. That really annoys me because it was my 10K RPM main drive and there was a 120mm fan in front of it blowing air on it constantly. Now it is in the lower HDD bay where there are no fans.

Always go straight to Nvidia's site for the drivers.

By the way there are new ones out.

Don't worry about performance issues right now, with a whole new architecture comes immature drivers for it at first, then they get better as you move on.

I have yet to install 177.41. I have been running on 177.40.

I will install the driver here in a minute and then I'm going to play Crysis pretty much all weekend haha. I haven't had time for the PC because I have been installing a turbo kit on a Chevy Silverado with a 5.3L V8.
post #56 of 109
Haha, nothing like retarded pickup. I own a Ford by the way.

ANyways, I am currently on the fence with this card as I want 2 to run in SLI. I currently have 2 8800gts's and I am trying to justify the price vs performance upgrade.



And as far as the Vantage scores go, did you intsall the Physix driver?

The turbo isn't running quite right. We are waiting on a file to reprogram the computer. He is running the Flex Fuel vehicle so the company was unprepared for that. I guess they have never dealt with a flex fuel vehicle before so they are having to reprogram everything new. It will take a few weeks.

I did install the Physx drivers. I am getting about 4000 points LESS when it comes to my CPU score on Vantage as opposed to one 8800GTS at 770 core. This would tell me that my GTX260 at 650 core is performing less with the CUDA technology than the 8800GTS.

I'm going to run the Crysis bench again in just a minute to show you what I am getting with my overclock of 650 core which is stable. I also want to add that I am able to run 1920x1200 with 4xAA and I get around 40-50FPS under normal play, and when things get rough I get around 28-35FPS. That is completely acceptable for me and it looks beautiful.

I just got done playing Team Fortress 2 with 16QxAA and 16xAF and it looks incredible and I got upwards of 170FPS according to Fraps.

Mine is coming in from newegg today! Should be a few more hours until ups comes here to drop it off. I can't wait!
These two 9800's heat my room up like a sauna if I keep the window close or turn the A/C off. (i don't run a/c with an open window)

Can you please install the .41 drivers and tell us if it works?

.41 drivers have been installed and so far no problems. I have yet to run FAH with the .41 drivers but I know with the .4 driver I was losing around 2000PPD as compared to my 8800GTS at 770 core. That really pissed me off.

Here is 1920x1200 with 4xAA. Average 25FPS. When playing the game at this setting I turn motion blur off, post processing to low, as well as shadows to low. It makes it completely playable.

post #60 of 109
Greg, can you plase do that same crysis test but with no AA, so from 4x to 0.

Can you also set shadows to medium.
Then when you do that can you do the same but with very high texture?

Thanks a lot man!
