Many manufacturer's offer an overclock tool these days. If not you might want to try RivaTuner. There's really nothing "unsafe" about it. You just keep bumping it up until you get artifacts.

I am overclocking using the precision tool and it has helped me get:

Core Clock: 825
Shader Clock: 1650

Just keep oc'ing until it caps out, your not going to hurt anything. There's not room for chickens in the computer world lol

Did you find a fix for this? MIne looks just like yours, and I'm not having any luck with the couple of quick google searches I've made.

New video on youtube for FallOut 3. It's only 27 seconds, but that video took me 3 hours to upload to youtube for whatever reason.

Interesting, I've never seen the game like that. Am I the only one though that gets annoyed that the side screens are distorted so much? I know it may be by design but it just seems to be very distracting.

I noticed the distortion on this video and the JC2 vid too. I can tell you though that when you are sitting in front of the screens and actually playing it's not nearly so exaggerated. You literally don't notice it. I can say the side monitors are not just periphery either, they are quite helpful in gameplay too.

Scott, I'm a big Sim City fan. I'm hoping/begging for a sim city 5. I bought CXL, but didn't get very far, 2011 for the most part is just a glorified patch. They should not have charged for it or called it a separate game. That being said, you can buy the game for $20 which is a discount for CXL owners. Hit me up if you need to know how.

Actually, here's the link. http://us-focushop.gamesplanet.com/s...ecialOffer=yes

Here is my tri display setup but it's a more deicated for sim racing then for other gaming. SLI-Pro wheel plate with Chilicoke G25 adapter and extended paddles and a 350mm racing wheel. Obutto rig with tri 23.6" ASUS displays with Nvidia Surround using two old GTX280s SLI'd. Vid cap with a very cheap micro sport cam.

It's a real steering wheel and is pretty rough. Also after many hours I can get blisters on my thumb . The paddel shifters have a pretty rough edge and the gloves helps a lot. Actually I have three pairs, the short SPACRO's, long karting gloves and long OMP F1 gloves (over kill since they are NOMEX ).

That's because I've been playing tons of Cities XL and been busy with work.
