    I'm running XP 64-bit Pro on my 2008 mac pro... the February drivers for it work fine, but there have been 2 updates since then, both of which screw up the card. Are the drivers on the Leopard disk the only ones designed specifically for it or can newer one be used?

    I had this problem once on my 08 Mac Pro with 8800GT. I just restarted the machine a couple of times and it worked. Change the resolution up and down and then set to max. Check if the previous driver was uninstalled in the Device Manager. Call Apple, it's always worth a try.

    Well I just installed the latest drivers, of Nov. 19 and they seem stable, and games seem to be much faster. I think it was just the early releases of Physx stuff that wasn't quite ironed out for XP 64bit. Just have to make sure you make a restore point, which is something I'm not used to on the Mac side. :)
