    Yeah, quite stunning how they got releases out for every beta and then stop suddenly.

    They prob wanna do a joint 8800 and unified driver launch, but they really are taking the piss.

    However, with the leaks its good to see the drivers are getting better, I think alot of vendors will be ready for the GA>.

    We need some real opengl support for the 8800 line there are problems reported all over for the 64bit gamers .... I cant run any HL2 based games , Farcry 64 dead, these games wont ever start.

    I love my card the games that I am playing FEAR, OBLIVION NHL07, BF2 all are flying along its an insane videocard ... just needs some real driver support soon.


    edit: ET works needed to fiddle settings

    edit 2 : If I force DX8 in the launch options then I can run the HL2 games like DOD source and CS source.

    bump for the people that might need to know about x64 and 8800gts driver problems with source based games, seems that another person I have talked to with the same BFG card as me also has troubles his blue screens with the latest drivers in source games.
