Is it just me or does it happen to everyone... I can't alt-tab without crashing.

The Reclusa keybord I am using has a Windows button fare to close to my favite gaming keys.
Pressing windows button in game doesn't atamaticly Bisod the computer anymore with the 99 drivers.

I rarely ever experience a crash when alt tabbing. I don't even remember the last time it has happened and I have around 300 games. I alt tab all the time. Now with steam having its own browser I don't need to do it as often but I wish it had msn/etc support built in too.

I just installed a second GTX470 + driver chage in my rig and now Metro 2033 is all glitchy. The best I can describe it is flickering, maybe some stuttering. That suck. Anybody experienced something similar ?

I got GTX 295( = 270 sli), getting around 4x FPS average and sometime dropping to 1x-2x FPS. Yes, I feel micro stuttering , and quite laggy too.

it is pretty normal if you get around 3x-4x fps with SLI setting

Heard someone said if SLI run below 4x, it become very unplayable, I guess it is true.

My single GTX 470 which is running DX9 all max, have much better gameplay even I get around 4x fps
