This release does support hardware PhysX on G92 and above, like all 177 releases.

I've only tested them on UT3 and Media Player Classic Homecinema, but these seem pretty solid.

What I like about these is that nVidia FINALLY included a way of adjusting video levels (16-235 or 0-255) in the damned control panel. I had to rely on some Media Center extensions from the Purevideo MPEG-2 decoder in order to correct them in previous releases. I have a feeling this set will be popular with the HTPC crowd.

Looks like these are keepers.

EDIT: Just tested out Crysis, and looks like it still suffers the cloaking glitch. But it's my understanding that all the 177 drivers have that issue, so it's not really a dealbreaker for me.

EDIT 2: I would recommend the LaptopVideo2Go (http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index.php?showforum=94) versions of this driver, since they have a lot of the unnecessary crap removed and generally provide a much smoother installation.

Grabbin' these from Laptopvideo2go. Slow download rate ATM. I'll report back after install.

EDIT: Keepers for me! First driver I've ever used (since getting my current LCD) that enable Scaling (although I don't need it) and this driver has some new Video Color Enhancement settings that may turn out useful. Played DiRT for a bit and all ran fine, now on to CoD4 and RSVegas.

BTW, if you get them from Laptopvideo2go, you won't need the modded .inf file, not sure why he even has one on there, because all cards are supported by the original .inf file.

guru3d has these as well. www.guru3d.com

You do not need a modified inf with these drivers.

You got that right! That sold me on these drivers. I can live with game glitches if I can only do that adjustment. It's been driving me crazy!

They work very fine here.

Faster than the 177.35 and 177.41. The 41's are slow imho. The '66's are fastest. :)
