whenever you install a new hardware device reformat and reinstall that OS, there are probably some unseen remnants of Nvidia drivers lying around that are conflicting....

ok
now i know the problem
i have bought this card because i thought it is 275/275
not i am sure memory is at 188 only WTF:mad: :mad: :mad:
It is kinda of 8500LE though it was not written on it
That is why it was too cheap
but what i am mad about is that it had the same cover as the normal 8500

That LE should still do better, I'll trade you for my 128meg 9000??
lol
Do the latest driver thing, and I am sure someone will shoot this down but screw the trying to overclock one of these cards. Accepted for what they are they are a good bang for the buck regardless. The ati drivers should determine the best settings for clock speen al on their own, and I beleive it would be max anyway.
