I hope your issues get sorted.. This is my biggest fear on team red, issue and waiting for a new driver.. Hope it's much faster than the CF fix.

Things aren't that rosy on the green side ever. Nvidia has been slipping massively this entire year. They no longer put as much resources into drivers and SLI support as they once did. People still compliment them for their drivers and SLI support, but I don't think this is deserved anymore.

I can happily say I have no issues whatsoever. No black screen, no artifacts, nothing.

I'm going to stay with the 290X bios for the life of the card now.

You mean the guys that had 3 - 4 driver releases in as many weeks during the BF4 beta?
