ok, so im so proud of myself for building my first computer. It runs MOH:AA on top specs. I decided to try and softmod my vid card to try Doom 3, but it didn't seem to work. So i tried to OC it by using RadLinker, which came with the Omega drivers i downloaded to attempt the softmod. I oc'd it too much a few times but just restarted my computer and booted it back to the BIOS settings. I OC'd it too much again, but when i restarted my computer everything was mucked pretty bad ( broken landscapes, chequerboard effect) So feeling suicidal, that i had destryoed my work, i removed the vid card rebooted and it was fine (breathe a sigh of relief) i uninstald the Omega drivers, then re-inserted the vid card, then installed the original drivers. But there were resolution and colour problems with MOH:AA, so i uninstalled the origigal drivers and re-installed the Omega Drivers, and everythong works fine. Although Doom 3 runs appallingly, i even turned it down to 640xwhatever and it still ran really really bad. I then re-reinstalled the origianal drivers, and put the vid card to optimal perfromance on OpenGL and DirectX, it ran a bit better, so tried optimal quality, and it ran the same as optimal perfromance.
Have i damaged my vid card, or is my system just not up for running D3?, i have Omega Drivers installed at the moment. I've been told to install the updated drivers off the ATI site, and download the Win Update SP2 pack, but i havnt got he net on it yet.
