Im running nForce 4 SLi w/ GeForce 6600 GT's (Dual) AMD 64 3200+ w/1gig ram. I went to turn on AA in Guild Wars and i get a messed up screen, it flashes and joggs around. I have updated drivers for both mobo and gpu. Whats up!??

works fine for me, im on SLI 6800GTs with 2gigs of ram and an FX-55. perhaps use driver cleaner to wipe your current video drivers and give it a completely fresh install?

Eh, i'll just run without it, it'll give me more FPS in the long run.

I had the same problem. I have a 6600GT. It only happens if I have applications running in the background, though, such as Firefox. Alt-tabbing out with AA on is also bad, at least on my end. The frame-rate drops after that.

I now run with AA off. The game still looks pretty anyway.

I run AA x4 with AF x4 quality mode on a 9800pro 128meg, and not only do I not get any errors or tabbing problems, not only does it run at 85fps continuously (v-synced), but I paid signifigantly less then those systems, probably along the lines of 1/3 the price.

Thats whats called bleeding edge technology. Give the next generation cards time to mature their drivers and come down in price.

PS: A proper driver cleaner wipe should solve the flicker problem, I was having a similar problem with the Omega drivers after I reinstalled windows. Strange because I never had the problem before reinstall from the same download file.

Don't give up.
Your computer should be able to run this game at extremely high FPS with antialiasing on.

Check out www.Guru3D.com for everything on video cards and drivers. There are driver removers in their download section.

Driver Cleaner 3 has got what you want. Dunno the website, but just google the name and you'll get it quick.

The process involves going into safe mode but it's really quiet straight forward and works great. Just make sure you read the readme

I'm running a dual 6600GT SLI rig, with all the settings maxed out, and I have not seen any problems at all.

Maybe the problem is just nVidia? I've never respected them as a company, to much shifty business.

Anyone without a nvidia card have problems like this? (ie: ATi)

6600GT's are nvidia and like I said, I have had no problems at all and am getting in the high 80's for frame rates while maxing out all the settings.

6800 problem only then? Probably something they'll fix in the drivers next month, just check the release logs. Seems like it's SLI only or else the 6800 owners without would be speaking up.

Dual cards/core has never been easy, thus why were only getting a true taste of it now. (Don't bring up the Voodoo 2s, because they alternated drawing lines, no real intergration, but it's very ingenious)

I encountered the same graphical anomalies with the OEM drivers that came with the cards. I upgraded my drivers to the latest WHQLR certified. It states in the readme that it corrects the SLI issue and the "unchecking" of the SLI option on the vid properties. The latest drivers corrected all issues and my dual 6800 gts run flawless (It even corrects the incorrect temp readings as well). I use the -perfs command line and get 100-110 fps on 1280x1024 max settings.
