no probs i understood u were getting frustrated...happened to me too when need for speed was stuttering on my gtx 460.....
Out of the time i've spent on gaming,at least 30% or even more has gone into configuring the games to work like they SHOULD work.And that is a total waste
But i'm glad now all things worked out.
And another question...if i want to clock or tweak my fan speeds what program should i choose
MSI afterburner or Rivatuner?
