    my specs
    XP Pro, SP2
    ASUS P4S8X
    BIOS (Award Software) -
    version; ASUS P4S8X ACPI BIOS Revision 1004
    SiS® 648 North Bridge / SiS® 963 South Bridge
    P4 2.4 GHz
    1.5 GB RAM (3x512)
    120 GB HD
    ATI Raeon HD 2600 XT AGP (512 MB)
    Catalyst® Version 8.41 RC3, Aug 20, 2007
    M-Audio Delta 44
    450w PS

    I recently upgraded to a Radeon HD 2600 XT - AGP(visiontek). I used Driver Cleaner to remove all previous drivers, then acquired the latest Catalyst drivers from visiontek (they appear to be identical to what ATI offered). I also installed the latest SIS AGP drivers for my board.
    Perviously I attempted to use both the ATI site's drivers and then "Omega" drivers with the same results - bad.

    During 'Oblivion' things are most notable. The graphics are sporadically chunky, discolored, etc. The temps 'seem' ok (it happens right at start up anyway, so prob. not the issue?). In fact, even the Windows Welcome screen sort of 'scrolls down' it's blue screen so slowly that it's visible.

    Any ideas? This is lousy. :( If I did this right, here are a few examples of how it looks.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!
