If you install DX9.0c, then use the 61.71's, if not, then use the current ones on nvidia's site. You might try the 60.85's, but not sure if they need DX9.0c or not. Anyone?

I second that, GRUNT....

:)

44k in Aquamark3 on a 2.1ghz, 190fsb/512mb rig is prety ok if you ask me... vidcard was @ 520/1.04 I think.

And more importantly, lately anyhow with the newer driver releases the 5800U now competently performs very very similarly to the 5900 and 5900U. :D

hm its been a while since i've tried the 61.xx series, last time i did i had missing textures and poor performance on my 5800u. i've been using the 55.72's for some time.

deed: why do you say the 61.21 is the best for the 5800.

these drivers caused my 3D fan speed to stay on for an indefinite time. i left with it running at high rpm after i was done playing a game, went out for about 2.5 hours, and came back and it was still on. i checked task manager and no resident 3d apps were running. probably end up goin back to 55.72's

i haved tried every 6x.xx series drivers to my 5800,only 61.21 WHQL can keep the high scores in 3DMARK01,03 and get high performance in AA,AF,and no crash with other applications and IQ is every nice,so i choose it.

So 61.21 is the best? I have been polling every post and 61.21 seem to be what you guys like.
