    Find that this game works great, even with the built in Vista drivers; the lack of which is causing many other games not to work.

    Only issue is that when I press the Windows key to get to the desktop it can sometimes flicker madly, hopefully this is something that NVIDIA can fix.

    The only statement I can get from NVIDIA is that they will have a driver out by the consumer release, which is kind of pathetic as they have been quite quick with all the drivers through both the betas and release candidates.

    I don't see that flicker you talk about ... but I also got my drivers from Nvidia. You can't seem to navigate to the Vista drivers from the Nvidia site. I followed a link to it on the Nvidia site from another forum.

    I get trouble with WoW on Vista. Nothing too serious, but I cannot seem to enable vertical sync with my monitor and I get 'tearing' of polygons when moving quickly. I've tried forcing it with the NVIDIA Control Panel and also tried letting the 'application decide' and enabling it in WoW but I still can't get it enabled.

    Anyone else had this problem? Also, it doesn't run as smoothly as it did in XP.

    PS Gratz on 39 Brad - have you got to 40 by now? Looking forward to your mount?

    I am actually level 50 now. I am now saving for my Epic Mount.

    I have no idea about the issue that you are having...I wish you the best of luck with getting it resolved.

    I remember reading some crap on the Blizzard website which stated that the time to get from 60 - 70 was about the same as from 1 - 60. Such a load of cod - I know people who did it in just over a week!
