    None so far, apart from the aforementioned driver bugs, the system has run perfectly at 3.65.

    That is good news. Yeah I really hope these "Big" Video Card Companys will start taking Bindows 64 Bit seriously and fix the friggin problems with there drivers. Its so painful.

    Agreed. What's bizarre is when I first installed 9.1 I didn't actually have this issue. I wonder if it appeared when I installed FEAR 2, as that was the first game where the problem showed up...

    Does it only do it with fear 2? Of does it do it with all games? I only have the problem with ArmA: Armed Assault. Works Sweet with Vista 32 but not 64.

    FEAR 2 and Left 4 Dead so far, but those are the only games I've played recently...
