    I apologize for posting to two groups, but I thought the Tyan group may
    have more experience with this.

    I just added an MSI 8800 GTX video card to my Tyan K8WE (2895) system
    running Windows x64. I had to upgrade the BIOS of the motherboard to
    1.04a (beta) to support the video card, and I am running the new nVidia

    beta drivers for the 8800 GTX in x64. Some games will not work
    correctly, and some stuff will not install. For example, I can not
    install the new Futuremark 1.10. I was just wondering whether others
    are having similar problems.

    Thank you! :)

    I'm going to answer my own post. Futuremark 1.10 is *not* guaranteed
    to work on 64-bit systems. Furthermore, it is not guaranteed to work
    with 8800GTX video cards. It seems that Futuremark will be upgraded
    soon, I would expect.

    nVidia has already released generation two of drivers for the 8800GTX,
    so they should be even more stable than the first set. No new BIOS
    from Tyan yet, however.
