You're not being impatient at all. A cry has risen up from all corners of the internets about Nvidia's lousy drivers causing the very problems you describe; problems that haven't been fixed since the GeForce 8 series was introduced in late 2006!

Anywho, you could probably get quite a bit for your 8800GTS 512MB if you sold it right now. Maybe almost enough to cover the cost of a 4850 if you can find one on the cheap, which shouldn't be too hard to do. While 4870s are very hard to find right now, 4850s are rather plentiful as well as cheap. You would also gain a little performance boost as well, especially at high res with AA.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
