    anyone having troubles getting the overdrive to work properly?

    windows XP 64.... both 6.2 and 6.3's

    .net 2.0 installed only......

    first few startups of the system resulted in a fully working overdrive tab......

    now every time it just says that is hasn't initialized yet.. please try again later... even after running for several hours...

    Got the x1900xtx on friday, have to admit it seems better than the 7800gtx 512mb i had.

    I actually get solid framerates in cs_militia map on cs source, with all that hdr lighting, lots of aa + af turned on...

    Also, BF2 seems to run smoother and has more fps.

    looking to get one with next rig.... And having a wife into gaming is even better :) she lets you get the good stuff cause she gets your hand me downs!

    So which brand is best? And is it really worth the money xtx vs xt or what ever the alphabet soup is. I just want either x1900 or x1800 for the best band for the buck.

    I should have my connect 3d X1900XTX shorly :drool:. I got from the this week only at overclockers : http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_This_Week_Only_25.html

    £280 for a powercolour X1900XT, £310 for a connect 3d X1900XTX. Darn I cant wait!

    Oh, and its replacing a crappy X1800XT :duh:.

    The X1900XT has 1.2ns memory, and the XTX has 1.1 which should overclock more. Depends on the price difference. (only £20-30 in the UK)

    Hi, I got myself an x1900 crossfire (the secondto come whenthe price is down) and built the rest of the PC around it.Unfortunately nothing works but the games, so my internet gets shut off, sameas the rest of the programmes. They mostly don't respond, orget closed as well, or when opening 'my computer' it takes about 5minutes untill it opens. A lot of more happens without me willing so and what to do?? Can it be because there is a current leak (little current on the case)? Any suggestions?
    Thanx,
    Gaston

    X1900 All In Wonder

    I recieved mine about a week agon and RMA'ed it back to newegg.com after talking to ATI support they concluded that the card was bad. Using it with an Asus A8R32-MVP Deluxe that I also RMA'ed. I wished that niether card nor motherboard gave me problems but as luck would have it i had to RMA them back. For the short time that I used it for, it worked out great. Can't wait to reassemble the rig. I paid $409.00 for the card after a $30 rebate. I would have gone for the XTX but I like the multi media aspect of the AIW.

    ___
    Forgot to add that it is replacing my ATI 9800 All In Wonder Pro
