    Win2K & Gforce 2 MX

    I have been experimenting with drivers for my Gforce 2 MX for about a week and have finaly come up with stability and performance.

    All of my testing was done with 3D Mark 2000.

    Using the 1080s and directx 7 I was getting 4249 3D Marks but I was getting strange colors on objects in games. Also, I would loose some resolution settings and my resolution would drop if I clicked on the advanced tab in my display properties.

    My results were the same with the 1040 and 7.68 drivers.

    I went back to the 6.50 drivers and my score went back to 3550 but games ran good and my display properties were right again

    I installed directx 8.0a tonite and ran 3D Mark 2000 and got a score of 4532! That's a 982 point increase and everything works right!

    I just wanted to share my results.

    Currently my card is not overclocked, that's why I was so happy with the results!

    At one time, I installed Coolbits and it worked in Win 2K. I decided not to use Coolbits because of the way it started in Win 2K.
