I'm in the process of downloading thiis driver, but I noticed that the file size doesn't agree with the Nvidia download page for XP x64, which is given as 70.2MBs, and the size downloaded is 44.6MBs. Should I just consider this as a typo, or as a signal of something awry?

International package (70Mb) vs English only drivers (44Mb) ?

That may well be the case, but the file that the page shows is for the English version only. I went ahead and installed the driver, and it seems to be okay, but I'm still curious.

Curiously, while poking around, I found a page that verifies the size for XP x64 as being 70.2, as shown on the Nvidia page:

Check under drivers.

I also noticed that the file size for the Vista driver is about the same as the one that I downloaded and installed, though it was offered for XP x64. I've always wondered just how different XP x64 and Vista 64 are? I had the impression that the primary differences are cosmetic, but if that were so, then there would be no need for different programs and drivers.
