Open Dashboard and add a widget, it should make a ripple effect (like waves). Or, open System Profiler and click on PCI Cards, and under your card, look for "Driver Installed".

Damn, then i guess my gtx 260 with EFI strings isnt working correctly. No ripple in dashboard and nothing in "pci cards"

even with chameleon graphics enabler i never saw the ripple effects... any advice???

I am on a 460 and I don't get a ripple effect in dashboard either. However, I get 29 fps in cinebench open gl test, so I am not sure if mine is enabled or not. Also, I can play TF2 for a little bit, but usually my card will freeze.

How is this done? I do not see any options in mission control to "uncheck show dashboard as a space"

thanks :)

Thanks for the tip. The only thing I ever use dashboard for is to check the status of my video card by looking for the ripple. haha.
