NICE!

the nvidia 81.95 gave me problems on CS, it would show me the cs screen(with two cts) then it would quit the game and go bacck to desktop.

I installed a much older driver, 77.xx and it works flawlessly. IN WIDESCREEN!! hehe
 
Catalyst control center is part of the reason i'm looking into SLi for my next machine :-(. I dunno, i'll have to see what I have money for after I get some bills paid (since christmas has become expensive :-\).
