Its a known issue according to posts I have seen on cgtalk.com.

Thats why I am waiting for a patch to this problem before getting my 6800.

Propably a driver issue. I have zero problems with my 6800GT on my PC (WinXP).

did you install the 10.3.7 patch? They say they have made some change to NVidia drivers.

If you are still experiencing problems, I would gladly exchange your 6800 for my 5200 ;-)

Btw, can you update this thread once the problem is fixed? Because I am eventually going to upgrade to a 6800 or maybe the x800 when it come out and I wont do it until there are compatibility issues with Maya...

Also, I have read that a few user on cgtalk had no problem with the 6800 ultra so maybe the problem isnt generalised which means that its maybe not a driver issue... Or that the people reporting no problem arent using Maya with the same specs as you. Btw, try to change resolution / refresh rate, I dont think it would change anything but you never know...
