Angry Asus EN8800 issues

I'm using an Asus EN8800 (GeForce 8800 Ultra) graphics card with an XFX nForce 680i LT mobo and Win 7. I keep having games crash out saying the graphics driver has stopped working. I've installed the latest driver from the nVidia website despite Windows saying I have the latest version and can't think of anything else to try.
I have two EN8800's and have had the same problem with both of them but I'm not using them in SLI config (not enough space in my case!).
I've also been told that the nForce board has issues when used with Intel chips but don't know if this is related (I'm using a P4).

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Check the temps of them using HWMonitor, google it. Your card may be overheating when you play games.

So yes I've reinstalled them.


I'll try that out, any idea what kind of temp the card should be running at?

The Card should be under 90C... Shut down temp is 110C ish.

Ideally it should be under 70 on load.

btw its

I ran za 680i anhd an 8800gt just fine, fold on a 650i chipset and the sae 8800gt as before. SO it should be fine.
