My System Specs

You mentioned that you have another rig on the go. Do you have enough parts to just throw it together on an open bench, (mobo, psu, ram, cpu, video card, drives) and use the 260 in that rig? Install using the 190.xx drivers with Windows.

Good to see you around...myself and Kruzn mentioned that we have not seen you much!
I have all the parts, just no space to work right now.

I mean, I suppose I could test the 260 out in another setup, but it seems strange that the 280 would work right away on installing it with the very same drivers. I mean, in Safe Mode it was fine, but in regular Windows it was a no-go.

And this just happened after happily folding and gaming for weeks since installing the new drivers.

Maybe the drivers have a bug with the 260?

Anyway, when I get some time, I'll do some more tests on the card.

And yes, I'm still around

Just been very busy lately and not enough time for computer stuff!
