Murlocke Twitching can be caused by vsync or the game not liking SLI (which your card has)

Try turning sli or vsync on/off

Probably a driver issue as well.

!TopGear! I wouldnt trust that Conflict Denied ops is 100% bug free itself, it could be that this game has issues with the GX2.

Try something like CSS or Crysis which are known to work fine with the GX2.

Also disable any AA you have on cos the current drivers don't support it when in SLi mode, could be whats causing oyur probs.

If I was you i'd reformat just because reformating doesn't bother me.. but no promises it will fix your issues.

You DID enable SLI in the control panel correct? Pretty sure with 1 9800GX2 you still get the option to enable/disable the built in SLI?



Same.. and the longest I go without reformating is 2 months tops. Storage drives FTW, takes like 30 mins to reformat.
It enables by default with a single GX2.

Murlocke Yup power should be fine.

Try the 174.74 betas that were just released... make sure you uninstall your drivers, and restart your computer before installing them.

Also did you switch GPUs and not reformat windows? You'll likely need to either reformat or run a driver cleaner... but I don't think there are any good free driver cleaners for vista.. the one I use cost $. CCleaner cleans it pretty well though.
