Im running an FX5900XT with the 60.72 drivers and it runs all my DX8 games perfectly and even scores well in 3DMark 2001SE. But seeing some flaw in my DX9 Game (Legacy of Kain). Seeing flashing in bricks on ground. Nothing big but its there, and Vertex Shader in 3DMark 2003 is very Choppy with lower scores compared to other drivers. It seems all over that someone is finding probs in other drivers (sharpening bug, and etc....). So we can agree that there is no perfect Forceware yet, but which one is the Lesser of Evils? But I like the 60.72's cause 2D is Very Very Crisp and Sharp :), but probs in DX9 game. Which one have you settled on so I can try it and maybe stick with it until the next Official Forceware Update? (daz)

I using 60.72 to. Got the same thing in 3Dmark. But it makes FarCry run perfect in Opengl.

Wow! I took a big 7 fps hit with those. And that was done while using Driver Cleaner 2 also. But that was when I was running W2K though. Been running XP for only 3 weeks. I like it a little better now since I've been running an FX card. Hated XP when I had my Radeon 8500. I think I'll give the 56.72's another shot tonight. Thanx! :)

56.72. I have a few issues with the 60.72s although I was glad to finally get the lighting fixed in NFSU with the 60.72s.

60.72 forcewares don't really like the 5800
pretty unstable when in games

You were right! I gained 20-120 points in 3DM1, 3DM3, and AquaM3 (being the most) across the board. Haven't seen any issues yet in my #1 DX9 Game (Legacy of Kain) yet. Cant wait to get some other DX9 Games to my collection. Thanx again!!

Well Old SKOOL wise, the 12.81's were amazing, but the 60.72 are nice for mid range fx's.

My FX5900XT runs the fastest with those drivers, but UT2004 Demo was unstable. I had to run it in Forced MipMaps_Trilinear to make it stable enough to run, and 2D was so-so. But other than that they were great.

56.64 for me coz 56.72 made NFSU run a tad choppier & my Far Cry's graphics look like XIII.

45.23 gave me the best 3dmark score, but I use the 56.72 drivers because of the Nview 3.0 software since I use dual displays. Unfortunetly it killed my 3dmark score, but all my games run perfectly fine so no big deal. Although I noticed the opengl performs a little better in 45.23 as well, not sure why.

53.04 2.20wdm win2kxp international whql

I modded the above drivers to work with my flashed fx 5900. So far, these are the fastest and least buggy drivers I have ever used on this card.

56.72, and 53.30 are my favourites. The 6X.XX drivers have some bugs in them that mess up some old games.

56.55s. I tried all the newer drivers, but they seem to scroow over the lod rendering by not rendering distance stuff like early drivers do. No wonder some see supposed speed improvements, the drivers are not rendering objects. Hence the speed increase. lol

I used the 53.03 drivers until I recently upgraded to the 61.11 beta drivers. I liked the performance increase I had with the 61.11 drivers esp in games like farcry and x2 the threat.

Geforce 2? I'd say from the 30's, 30.82 was superstable in my GF2U GTS. From the 40's sets, 43.45. Don't know if everyone agrees with me. Guys?

He's right, 30.82 Detornators is the best driver by far for GF2 & 3 cards.
