bf2 + nvidia drivers over 275.33 are broken
ok nvidia,
i'm not a computer or programer expert but i am not a novice either.
i am a beta tester for the worlds largest producer of ssds and i also repair and donate used computers to a worthy cause(computers for children).
a have 4 nvidia based rigs that can easily play bf2 but not with any driver version over 275.33
the issue is ctd (crash to desktop for the un-initiated).
i know only 300k are still playing the best fps of all time (battlefield 2) so it is probably not high up on your to do list but this is really forcing many users away from your products.
now all my nvidia based rigs are hogtied to older drivers because running bf2 is a mandatory prerequisite.

the sad part is i just ordered another $240 card from your competition because i now know though testing it will play bf2/bf3/skyrim.. with a moderate o.c. all on a single machine.
please tell me when this issue will be addressed or just come out and state nvidia sees it as a legacy game they no longer support.

please tell me not to sway the several people who ask me for advice weekly away from your products.

there must not be enough nvidia employees/reps here to survey the threads.
hopefully they are all writing code and a fix is right around the corner.
you are very close to losing a good customer.

glad this helped you.
what is going on w/ nvidia no new drivers for months?
anyone with ssd questions can go to ocztechnology forums and have some interesting reads.
can't talk about competitors products though.

why have does nvidia have a forum and not have enough staff to answer valid questions????
now i have two high end gaming machines that can either play bf2 with 275.33 or modern games on new drivers, not both.

been suffering with this issue for many months now and nvidia clearly dont give a dam as they have never fixed the issue
Every driver since 275.33 on my GTX 470 SLI setup and not 1 of them works, v sinc fix dont seem to work aswell

what ive had to do is keep changing between new drivers to play newer games and then switch back to 275.33 for bf2 , a right royal pain in the ass, really hoped Nvidia would off fixed this by now

Now my issue is i am at the point where im looking at upgrading my graphics cards and seeing as the new 6xx cards wont run on a driver as old as 275.33, that means no driver for BF2 !!

Forcing me to buy an AMD card for the very first time ever. having only had nvidia cards back from the days of the old Riva TNT i just hope the transition from Nvidia to AMD is not a painful one

Just lost a customer of over 10 years, Nice knowing you Nvidia
