The newer nvidia drivers are dual core supported, and did you know that you can force a game to run on one core in the task manager somehow.

I installed Windows XP 64 and installed all the 64 bit drivers for all my devices. (with the exception of my D-link wireless adapter which dosn't support XP 64 yet) The problem is the games still crash. I have a hunch that it is still the video card. Is there any possibility that the memory associated with the video card could be the problem? When I first ran FEAR on the system directly after installing the new drivers it ran for like five minutes before crashing. Also, it seems to crash most when in game cut scenes happen. As a last resort, and if there are no other suggestions I think I am just going to return my video card and see once and for all if this is the problem. If anyone has any other ideas before I do this please respond.
Thanks again,
