Well I think that would be in about 10 minutes if I'm not mistaken. Bring it on. :)

Oh and I think you mean G92-8800GTS not 8800GT since that's already out.

These drivers are WHQL "candidate" drivers, according to nvidia website.

From the responses so far i guess not.

aa and af both work for me :) I also can tell a big difference in the 21's compared to the 17's. I played cod4 so far with 16xaf 16x aa and it is smoothest i have ever played. Didn't notice any negatives with these at all.

Keepers for me

game.[254010]

Huge difference here in GoW. 163.75s stuttered pretty badly for me. Very smooth with these. No real fps increase I could notice, just over all smoother for me.

No way! After all this time, I'm suspicious. You could aways run the game by disabling bumpmapping, so we'll have to see if bumpmapping actually works or if they just disabled it at the driver level.
