hi. there might be an option you could tweak with a tool or something.
^ helpful : ). you know what i mean. rage3d tweak or something, maybe some registry key?
id just assume it was a dodgy driver release if it was me. i know people always say ‘try new drivers’ for video cards. ive found with older cards, though, its sometimes better just to stick with one that works. i doubt youll get any performance increase on a card from that era with the latest drivers. (more likely the reverse, in fact). (not that that isnt still a nice card).
you probably have, but you should always make sure you clean out any drivers properly before you change versions.
