Game flickering in Full Screen Mode???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi.

I am experiencing problems with my GPU's and full screen gaming e.g: Crysis/Crysis Warhead/GRID Etc.. When I switch to windowed mode it goes away but performance drops badly (from 40/50fps to 15/20fps) I have re-installed my drivers (180.48) but it does not help, also tried lots of different settings in Nvidia Controll Panel.. Specs below:

XFX 790i Ultra MB
4Gb OCZ 1800 DDR3
1KW Coolermaster PSU
Q6600 @ 3.0 Ghz
2x swiftech H20 220 Liquid cooling (1 for cpu/1 for GPU's)
2x BFG 9800 GX2 IN Quad SLI with EK waterblocks

Thanks in advance!!

This might not be it, but I haven't heard/seen good things from the XFX 7xx boards. So that MIGHT be your problem somehow. Have you tried updating your BIOS? Have you tried with just one 9800GX2? Is your SLI bridge seated well? Have you tried older drivers (178.24)?

Solved! (I think)
If anyone else is having problems with flickering in games - try this:
Go to Nvidia Controll Panel - manage 3D Settings - Texture Filtering Quality Negative LOD Bias SET this to "Allow" and it should fix things... worked for me happy gaming
