Hi Gordan,

I received my Asus GTX 480 today (bought on ebay).

Finally I succeeded in

- quadrifying my GTX 480  into a Quadro 6000 ( softmod).

- overpassing the 3-4GB of RAM on Windows XP 64 bits (domU) by applying a well known patch for Xen.

- playing Crysis 2 and Darksiders II for a few minutes.


Using nvlfash I had to alter my (OR mask 1) so I could install the latest driver for Quadro 6000 (320.86-quadro-tesla-grid-desktop-winxp-64bit-international-whql.exe).

I noticed that I had to do that else my domU may freez while launching Crysis 2.

Everything works perfectly for the moment.

I was very happy when my domU started without to apply my annoying patches for NVIDIA :)

I will have a try for a Linux domU tomorrow (Xen PVonHVM + NVIDIA + Wine). This is what I want :)

Kind regards.
