Windows 7: display driver nvidia windows kernel .....

191.07 drivers are working now with 7.

with my geforce 9800 gtx pro pci-express 2048 card I can play crisis and other games all on HIGHEST.

I have 3gb ram... my specs are below.

After installing that one I only had problems with the in game resolutions. I had to make them all match my desktop 1680x1050. After I did that they games are playing as the developers intended them to play. AWESOME.

LAG? non existent using 7 with my specs. in Vista it had to tweak tweak and tweak again.

The RAM management in 7 is off the hook. The process you are using has real time no matter what other processes you have running the background.

You have to change your way of thinking about windows now if you upgraded from xp.

If you used Vista for a while you already know some of the things to do.

In 7 let it manage your RAM and just keep your video drivers up to date and you will be amazed.

Try older drivers, Keep going back in drivers untill you find something more stable. Try the latest beta first, then keep moving back. If that doesn't work does your card require extra power from the PSU? Like the 6 pin adapter? Try running with just one card first, then add the seccond card in later.

AHHHH!!! i remember when they did that with the 7 series cards, when they FIRST made one of those. Or was it the 6800's? I don't remember, but they had a lot of driver issues. Win7 might have driver problems due to it being 2 cards in one, maybe a conflict or something.

AnandTech: More Single Card Dual GPU Madness: NVIDIA's Flagship 9800 GX2

According to this, it needs to have power connected internally straight from the psu.

That might not be all, since it's 2 cards in one the OS has to send data differently. I don't remember the details, but getting the 2 in 1 cards to work on new os's sometimes is a pain, try the Nvidia forums.

"Sending data" has no bearing on the power requirements for the card. It's simply that if the card has the connector, it needs the 6 or 8 pin connector connected from psu.

but they way the OS interacts with the card can BSOD

Which is why we are here in the first place.

[edit] always remember why we are here, if XP can get the card to run with 3D then I doubt it's power requirements. Because regardless of OS 3D is 3D and it'll suck the power when it wants. But different OS's talk to the cards differently, which can cause conflicts and our lovely BSOD.
