this should have been WHQL when the beta version first came out, best solid drivers since 178.xx as i remember.

I am also finding them the most solid set since 178.xx. I can play Fallout 3 for hours on end without a crash in Windows 7 with these...

Hmm, maybe I should reinstall... I can only play for acouple mins before I crash.

So far, I've only tried Mirror's Edge and from the moment it loads, there are flashing horizontal bars across the screen and plenty of tearing in-game. Last night, with the 180.48 (IIRC), it ran without glitches. SLIed 8800GTs 512MB.

Update: Just tried to launch Fallout 3 and it crashed before even getting to the menu. I played for five hours straight last week. Buh-bye to this drivers.

UPDATE: I rebooted and then played FO3 for an hour without a hitch. It only gacked when I docked my PDA and an appointment pop-up from Outlook minimized the window and it couldn't restore. Mirror's Edge is running nicely, too. Looks like a false alarm.

You can force v-synch in the control panel and it works well... no mouse lag.

These drivers have been ace for me, though I haven't played FO3 on them yet. I'll load it tonight and see what happens.

Note that if you use an LCD monitor that only accepts an HDMI input like the excellent (in all other respects) LG L246W your screen will be off center, with only about 2/3'rds of the right portion of the desktop on screen (shifts around depending on resolution).

The fix is here http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=117063

I wish NVIDIA would fix this annoying 'feature'. Most beta drivers don't have this problem, but every WHQL one I've tried does, it's been going on for almost a year now.

This set seems good for me. I played UT3, FO3 and WoW with this set and had no issues.

Was getting nvlddmkm.sys BSODs with the 185.20s. Cleaned those drivers off and came back to these and all has been well. Very good driver, just mission AO.

There were only issues on certain maps.

Deck always crashed within 1min, so try that one, I bet it won't work.
