Just a heads up guys/gals.

If anyone is trying to run old games in win 7 64 bit, make sure you use only one video card if you have SLI or Crossfire or the games won't run correctly. I just loaded Baldure's Gate and ran into this problem. When I killed one of my video cards in CCC the game ran fine. I like replaying these games because they were fun and had a lot of humor in them along with a good story.

Thanks!
I knew this held true for some games, but I didn't know it was more widespread.

Remember, when the old games were written there was only one video card...except Quake2 which used a add in card called Monster 3D...it had a whole 12 megs of ram!! Wohoooo!...and cost me 300 bucks! I still have the damn thing and it was paired with a S3 video card.LOL!

S3 got Bluray before everyone else, with their GT430, but they seem to have dropped off the map.

It seems to be true, they are making it over:

However if they use todays DRM...forget it I won't bite.
