A couple of months ago I bought a Geforce 6800GS AGP 256MB Verto PNY card. It didn't work too well no matter what drivers I installed and later on it died after 2 months. I sent it to PNY and today I got my replacement back. Problem is I dont know which drivers to install. the drivers on their website are either ones that dont have my cards specs on them, or they simply turn me to the Nvidia website. so I went there and installed the newest 91.31 drivers after cleaning with driver cleaner. I tried running heroes 5 and the godfather and both kept freezing for 30 seconds every 5-6 minutes eventually crashing my PC (win XP doesnt often CRASH - really cant do anything but push reset). anyne can help me pick drivers for me card? I fear the problem might be because all the drivers that do exist are meant for PCI-E cards or something... got 1GB ram put 128MG AGP aperture at bios also changed PCI latency to 128 as recommended on the nvidia website and still doesnt help. I dont know what to do please help me. :whistling:

Nvidia doesn't have any comment on whether the drivers are only for PCI-E? Also, is this a 8X or 16X card? Can your port handle speeds this fast?
