WTF is up with this? I like otp of the line cards... in May of 2001 i had a 399$ GeForce 3 whic served me well until i played homeworld 2. I went out to circuit city which had an ALL IN WONDER Radeon 9700 pro for 250$ which i think is good... anways i come home and install is using cat 3.8 and it is BARELY any faster in homeworld 2... with 2 AF and 2 AA turned on it lags with only 2 battlecruisers onscreen... Im currently running a Athlon 2600+ with 512 MB ram on the nforce 2 chipset. Any ideas as to why its lagging on HW2 when the 9700 PRO should TROUNCE my GF3?

Use the drivercleaner from <A HREF="http://www.driverheaven.net" target="_new">here</A> then make sure you use Catalyst 3.7 because 3.8 has been blowing up hardwares.

Bad 3.8 blowing up hardware. You better buy Nvidia.
