been getting strange behaviors at times that seem to point to my vid system .. after playing cpu heavy 3d games (aces high online for eg.) if I go to an intense website ( like Tom's front page).. my system locks totally , screen goes black except for a row of short vertical greeen lines across the top of the monitor and once also a wider group of multicolored vert. lines down the left side too... occassionally I get kicked out of Aces High right to the desktop .. the game can be restarted w\o a reboot ..
In addition if I install the latest Gef3 drivers )23.11) the sound card is messed up .. ( no sound) reinstallation of 21.83's fixes this .. when the 23.11's are in my usb joystick does not work in aces high either but is recognized in windows (98se) and can be calibrated.. system config below for any help from the troubleshooters :) 

thanx

How did you manage to fit a Northwood into a Dragon+?

Is your AGP aperture size set to 128/256 MB?
Maybe you want to try Cacheman to control your memory better:<A HREF="http://www.outertech.com" target="_new">http://www.outertech.com&lt;/A>.

it was 64 mb but I changed it to 128 .. come to think of it I'm here now without a restart directly after playing a few missions in aces high.. maybe that and the fact I lowered refresh from 85 to 75 did it .. (1024x768).. we will see

Are the 27.20 drivers better and faster then the 23.11 although they're beta. If they are faster I will try them too.

svol .. I really can't say haven't benched em yet to be honest.. don't see a FR improvement in Aces High (85 fps avg @ 85mhz, 75 fps avg@ 75 mhz)

The reason your FPS is the same as your refresh rate is because you have Vsync on...Your refresh rate limits the max FPS..Always turn it off for benchmarking.
