I bought in january the NEW GIGABYTE 9800 gtx+ 1 Gb.
Lot of problems: (GPU bios issues)
14 pages of problems on this forum and yet no reaction from Gigabyte. SCANDALOUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1) Heavy problem at installation (black screen with any OS)
2) Wrong Bios ( F11 ...F12)
3) Gamer hud don't work (even with bios F10)
4) The satisfaction Gigabyte team" don't help
5) Some 3D games are not recognize by the card which turn in 2D mode (FSX)
6) Overclocking impossible
7) Ventilo worksalways in minimum (40%) or maximum (100% very noisy)
8) Crash if you use last drivers
9) It's appear in Eversest that the GPU gravure is always 65 and not 55 ( + )
9) The result of all that, I replace the new Gigabyte 9800gtx+ by myold 7900GS which works faster.
Very strange, the card don't dtect FSX like a 3D game (it work in 2D mode at the half power)
