NVidia GeForce 6800 Ultra Fastwrite problems

  1. .. on an ASUS K8N-E Deluxe, Athlon 64 3400+, 1gb PC3200 RAM.

    My system regularly freezes with fastwrites enables, but works fine if I disable it.

    So I have a few (well, four) questions:

    1) Why is this hapenning? What is it about fastwrites which causes my system to crash?
    2) Could I regard one or other bits of my hardware to be "faulty"?
    3) Is there any software yet available which will enable me to use fastwrites and have a stable system?
    4) Is this a common problem?

    This is a common problem with some video cards, and not something you should worry about.

    This is a compatibility issue with some videocards, and mobo chipsets.

    Just leave fastwrites off.

    Faswrites are supposed to increase performance, but frequently cause stability issues.

    If you do a google search for "fastwrites" you`ll see what I mean.
