I always see two copies, one with an Nvidia symbol which indicated "Nvidia Recommended", and one without, however the version is the same. Why do they offer two, and what is different about the "Nvidia Recommended" driver?

Where? nVidia's site?

Yeah, the 185.85 drivers to be exact. One has the WHQL logo. :headexplode:

IDK....maybe one was a BETA? I still only see one, but I'm searching on via a product search...

There's two entries for 185.85 if you search through "Beta and Archived Drivers", but they both point to the same webpage so it is obviously just a typo.

Yeah I noticed that too, they both go to the same page so it must just be a database error or something.
