Regrettably there are no working 8500 drivers yet. I have resorted to re-installing an old 6600GT card (with Titan) which works with full QE/CI. There will be many other working cards out there (use the search engine) but if you want to keep using your 8500 card, then you'll have to wait for the drivers to be created I'm afraid.

Are you certain that the process you link to works on Tiger? The threads seem to suggest that it's Leo only. At least as far as 8xxx series graphics are concerned.
