For international, non-english users around the world, the UK version is multilang

For Spanish users around the world, 64 bit (http://www.nvidia.es/object/winvista_x64_163.75_es.html) and 32 bit (http://www.nvidia.es/object/winvista_x86_163.75_es.html).

Those links are for the old 163.75's and I'm only finding beta versions of the Spanish 169.25's on that site.

Any differences between these and the betas (besides being certified)?

If the driver revision # is the same then there is absolutely no diff between beta and whql. WHQL is just a label.

Some people won't install the driver at all until it gets that label. :)

It's odd that these would be the same drivers as the beta drivers since the profiles didn't work for me with the beta.

Any confirmation that they fixed the profile loading when they added WHQL?

I went back to my old drivers. These won't let me apply AF like I wish or I get to choose emphasize quality and they attempt to force 4xAA|8xAF. I tried selecting "use the advanced settings" and I can't get a thing to stick.

You are right, didn't notice it. Anyway it seems the UK version is international with all languages, including Spanish. Previous post edited, thanks.

x64 these seem to break Vsync with FSX and my 8800gtx.

I'm getting BSOD after a few minutes of FSX with these. No problems with Crysis, Civ4, QW:ET, or Witcher.
