    Having the latest drivers installed doesn't mean you will have the best performance. Just use the one that provides the most and stick to that. looks like the 4.45 doesn't cut it and you might as well fall back to the older driver. So, there is prolly nothig wrong with your computer...:)

    Ya have a VIA KM266 chipset based mobo which is primarily designed as a stable all-in-one office platform but these do sometimes have probs when another video card is fitted to them though do check to make sure that ya have AA turned off.

    Not really as ya runnin' a 166MHz FSB CPU in a mobo that's only designed for 100MHz and 133MHz FSB CPU's with memory that's not even up to speed with the CPU's FSB.

    That card blows balls. I have used 3 of em in systems, and they are horrible. They post bad 3d mark scores and are overall unstable. Go ATI youll be in the 13-14,000 range with your setup.
