I normally run at 83mhz bus speed; after installing the new drivers, i noticed in netscape visual artefects around windows, boxes, and some graphics. Before dismissing them as just a new driver problem, I rebooted into the normal 66mhz bus, and have been using them for some time now without a problem.

Before this time, 83 had been working perfectly for months. Before that, I was using 112mhz bus for a long time, with a different CPU. So, I'm fairly sure thats whats causing the problems for me. http://forums.gagames.com/forums/frown.gif

I guess an explanation is that the new drivers (which seem really fast and great otherwise) use more of a particular part of the card, or *something* like that, which is causing it to have some data transfer problems.

It won't be much of a problem for me, as I'm soon moving to a different (>100) bus speed again. But I thought I'd post here to see if anyone else finds that this is their problem too.
