    Has anyone out there used this card? I have a Triplex Sis Xabre 400 and have had some minor problems with the drivers- e.g. in some games it becomes the crash-a-matic. The problems won't happen with all games, and it will sit in windows happily for hours, but when you start the wrong game it WILL crash, normally within 5 minutes.

    The worst games for it were GTA-Vice City, Morrowind and NFSHP.
    Funnily enough, GTA3 was O.K. (ramdom crashes, but not to many) AvP ran perfectly and Serious Sam never crashed.

    I did try looking for a patch for the 'bad' games, and never did. The games work fine- if I take out the Xabre, and install the GF 4MX 440, none of these games crash.

    I have tried various drivers, Triplex's own (original, 3.06 and 3.11) and Sis reference (3.06, 3.07 and 3.10). I think I have tried others, but can't remember what version they were, and lost them during a format/reinstall.

    The most annoying thing is that the original drivers I got with the card are (as far as I can tell) the most stable. I thought that drivers got better over time, not worse!
    Has anyone esle seen these problems? Am I correct in guessing that it is the drivers? Is there anything that I can do, apart from take it back where I bought it and throw it at them? :grr:

    That card has some good ideas behind it but it has never been blessed by drivers that seem to work properly with it so it winds up as a lemon in my books. : peace2:

    Office apps and internet surfin' is fine with them but don't throw games at them.

    Your right, man.:snip:

    Yeah... It should have worked nicely if it had drivers that worked with it properly. When I put in the GF 4MX 440 the lack of dx8 kinda sucks... but at least it works on more games.

    As for why I bought it, it was cheaper than the MX440 I should have bought. At the time, it looked like Sis were going to really start making some good stuff, but I have never had any good drivers for the Xabre.

    The worst thing is, the Xabre is faster than the MX440 when it does run.:grr:
