    Ur using a LCD ??? A friend of mine faces strange flickering while playing Condemned on his lcd and a 6800GT ... and since those two engines are the same ..

    Well .. what i would say is that u should turn of vsync both from ingame and from the nvidia control panel .. and check ..

    And if ur using an LCD ... i know the exact solution ..

    Why so ???

    Actually running games lower than the native lcd res. can result in such problems ... for example .. a lcd having native res. of 1280*1024 should be used to run games at atleast 1280*1024 or u might face such problem ....

    Also .. why do u think ur 6800GS is under performing ??? Run some benchmarks and posts the scores. ..
