I know the GTS requires at least 1GB to run correctly and you have the GTX. Not sure if it requires a gig or more but you have a gig in your system now. I recommend getting a 2x1GB kit or get another gig of the same stuff you have now.

Did you install the latest drivers from nvidia's website?

Dude, if you installed the CD drivers... get em uninstalled. I'd this problem too. Those
drivers do not work propa! There's new drivers from nvidia, download em and install.
I'd the same problem as you. The card felt like it was performing like a 3 year old card.
The new drivers work wonders, and be prepared... keep your tongue in yer mouth haha!

Good luck, all's fine!

Tam...

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

These cards are new, so I wouldn't worry about it too much, I am sure Nvidia is working on better drivers to resolve this problem.
