Direct X 9 & Graphics Drivers

  Scrivers 08:58 29 Mar 2003

Anyone know of problems upgrading to DirectX 9? I've heard that it's necessary to upgrade the graphics card driver to avoid problems. I'm on DirectX 8.1b. My machine is fairly new and the card is a nVidia Geforce Ti4600.

I have DirectX9 installed and it works fine with my nVidia Geforce Ti4600 and drivers 41.09. Am playing 'Splinter Cell' at present with the resolution set at 1280 by 1024 and all other graphic options set at the highest level. Running like a dream.

Even the latest version of the detonator drivers 43.45 is perfectly stable, if anything a slight improvement on 41.09 and much better than the 42.xx drivers.

Just installed the 43.45 drivers - no problems at all.

the G/card interface it just takes me to the 41.09 page.

Go to nVidia website, drivers, there are 3 boxes from which you select 1)graphics card, 2)Geforce and 3)XP operationg system and it comes up with the 33.45 driver

Sorry that should have been the 43.45 driver

Scrivers,hi i do that but it only shows me the 41-09 drivers are the 43-45 compatable woth 98se?

When I downloaded the driver it gave 2 exe files. One was 43.45_win2xp_english.exe and other was 43.45_win2xp_international.exe. The english is 5Mb and the international is 21Mb. I haven't installed either yet. Am I right to assume that I just install the english 5Mb bit.

Hi Nickname, I don't know. Certainly if you put in XP it comes up with the 43.45. If you put in 98se as your operating system and it comes up with a different version, I would assume that 43.45 isn't compatible with 98se.
