Hi there, I have 2 GPU cards in my system a 4 gig and a 2 gig card. I have never had issues using one (2gig) for my OS and the 4 gig for rendering. Today no mater what i try my OS card is lagging a ton, cant really use the system at all. if i select teh 2 gig as the card to render and use 4 gig for OS things a fine , i am running the 1.2 build and like i said up until today i have not had issues.

Any thoughts on what may cause this?

If sounds like Windows is using the 4Gig card as the display adapter. Check your monitor is plugged into the 2Gig card.

Also, make sure SLI is disabled in the NVidia settings.

thansk paul, i have my 4 gig checked and it shows 4 gig available when rendering, if i choose other card in CUDA set up the system is unusable. Its almost like its using both or something.

Whats SLI?

Also, renders nearly doubled in time - something aint right ill look at video set up for sure.

SLI is an option in your NVidia control panel (I think!).

I suspect the Viewport is being created off the screen. Can you pls send me the 2012 config.xml file (it's in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Poser Pro\9). Are you using 2 monitors?

Thanks
