    Just a quick question. The new card @harrymatic sent me is an NVIDIA and it's doing very, very well. I am quite happy with it.

    But I'm wondering if there are any drivers or apps I might/should install?

    The website doesn't seem to say much and as it's a flashed card I'm not surprised.

    However, there is an ATI Accelerator app and ATI drivers that I installed when I originally purchased one of my FireGLs.

    I'm not trying to accelerate the card, but if there are any apps that allow access to specific NVIDIA features of the card (such as the drivers for ATI allow for my ATI cards) I'd love to know.

    Thanks!

    To my knowledge there aren't any drivers or utilities for the nVidia GPUs, other than the overclocking tool Graphiccelerator. This is not something I would recommend though, the 6800 runs hot enough as it is.

    Thanks! I have no intention of overclocking, I was just wondering if there was anything extra I should/might want to install.
