Warning about drivers by Ian
It looks like there might be a problem with the card. The drivers supplied on the CD (Ver 169.23) with it don't appear to support the hardware (Vista 64). The latest divers on the XFX site (Ver 169.25) seem to have the same problem. Looking at the config files within the driver, the 8800 GS doesnt appear to be listed with the rest of the hardware supported by the driver. I've tried letting XFX know about the problem, but I'm currently stuck on the first line support "have you tried turning of off and back on again" stage ;-(
Also, not very impressed with the fan on the card. Very noisy and seems to resonate in the card's heat sink.
The best place to get drivers are from the nvidia site
