Got these drivers for 9800 GT sli, loaded empire and the screen alternates between a loading screen, a white screen and the game screen with mad pixelation all over the shop. Resulting in a BSOD, I rolled back the drivers and going to see if it loads ok. Googling this topic, I see that other people experienced the same problem. So beware if this happens or wait for better drivers.

Yes, that seems to be a trend with drivers, some people are lucky while other encur problems. It must be do with set ups. Me?, q9450 quad 2.6 GHz, 4 gb's ram but apparently vista only uses 3, 1gb 9800 Gt sli mode running vista 32 bit. Anyway, rolling the driver back worked. Empire must be one of the current games that a lot of people are playing now but no updates from Nvidia for driver. Other games get 25% better gameplay or so, hopefully Empire will get something soon for Nvidia users.

I found the best solution, I use an ATI video card! Seriously, after all the problems I had with my old machine with it's NVIDIA card, I made sure I spec'd my new one with an ATI.

It might help you to turn off Multi GPU in the NVidia Control Panel.

ATI and Nvidia are both good, just depends on which company you prefer (but the smart thing to do is to get the best bang for the buck at the time of purchase).

Kinda the same thing with Intel and AMD... except AMD has sucked the last couple of years, and has only fallen more behind compared to Intel's speed and performance. They need to release something big soon to catch back up. Competition is weak now in the CPU market.
