  1. my problem is when, i go to device manager, and look under system devices, there nothiing showing for pci-e, i was told by asus that i have to use the old drivers form there site which sucks, i tried the ones form the nvidia site thats whan i get the problems not showing pic-e, but when i use the asus nvidia chipset drivers things are ok, wtf is with, if its a nforce chipset drivers, whats the difference where i get them from, also anyone having compatible issue with ati sapphire x1600 cards, cause i still get some bad *** lag, and flicker not matter what a do, even my clock speeds go missing, and drop below factory clocks while overclocking after i leave a game

    If your card is new did you make sure you uninstalled the previous drivers. Also ASUS must have found a compatibility problem with your motherboard and graphics card that why you have to use there driver. Also is you motherboard a AGP & PCI-E motherboard because if it is you may need to change some settings in the bios.
