I heard quadro drivers let you launch games in second screen in full screen and have full rendering. Any truth to that?

Digital Vibrance does not work in this driver set. As soon as I choose the percentage and click apply it reverts back to 0%. Can not get it to stick. Even the preview for flickers on and off.

Did you check it after you rebooted? With the .32's and the 171.16's, if you set it, it would go to 0, but upon reboot, it was at what you set it at.

Rebooted a few times even tried re-installing the driver.

Uninstall driver.
Boot into safemode.
Use Driver Sweeper.
Boot into normal Windows.
Use Reg Cleaner and Driver Sweeper.
Reboot.
Install driver.
Reboot.
Enable SLI.
Reboot.
Set Digital Vibrance, reverts back to 0.
Reboot. Still no Digital Vibrance.

Pretty much there is no Digital Vibrance in this driver.

Dont think so.
In windowed mode you can run games on any monitor on both quadro and geforce.
I think its a windows thing that fullscreen apps launch on the primary monitor.

There might be something in Nview to change what monitor a app launch to.
But best bet is make the monitor you want to lanch on primary, or run windowed mode.

Didn't test the 171.16, thanks to nvlddmkm kernel error that made me gave up on them.
But.. the previous benchmark with different settings gave me about 17.35 fps with the 169.32 drivers and 20.22 with the 171.16.

So how do these equate out? I am a Maya user and use a single 8800gtx. What quadro card would it most resemble?

Probably the Quadro FX 4600. Are you thinking about buying it?

For some reason, everytime I download these they are corrupt. No other file is doing this. Weird.

Performance with these was worse than 171.16 for me.
