Default Re: my psu wont melt now will it?

To save me typing another seperate thread does anyone know the best forceware for a 8800 and winxp combination? when i first installed the card it took me at least half hour to find some because most websites just said "forceware winxp/2000" and i didnt know whether or not it was just for 7 series cards or what, i ended up with 97.94 which according to the website was the lastest ones and it supports 8 series cards? anyway i can play my games fine so i guess i picked the right ones, but any better ones out there for winxp/8800. or are the ones ive got pretty good?

That's useless, unless he had like 10 hard drives, 5 opticals, SLI, and quad core, etc..
