i updated my nvidia forceware drivers and i have overclocked to 310 and 477... this seems to be all that the test wants to allow so i am done with OC'ing it but, my farcry game doenst work anymore... it just appears to be in a big heap of fog. my other games run better tho, so i am thinking is has to do with driver compatability. anyone else had this problem with farcry?
