I seem to only be able download these if I Right Click > Save Target As..., just in case anyone else is having troubles. Not sure if I wanna try these. 61.72 WHQL is rock solid but a little slower than some other drivers I've tried. 62.01 for me were absolutely hopeless. Wouldn't last more than 2 mins in a game or bench before it crashed. Seemed faster on the first test of 3DMark03 though.

3DM 2003 is 13,203 vs 13,226 on the 62.01 set so no difference there really, about to test farcry now.

Same here. I'm downloading and I'm sure I'll try these at some point but for now I want to enjoy the 61.72s a while.

downloaded but waiting to hear on stability.

62.01 beta's lasted through some quake3 playing, some other things, and then BSOD when an AVI had just stopped playing through MediaPlayerClassic.

first BSOD i've had since the 5x.xx + punkbuster issue was resolved.

NVIDIA_NV42.DEV_0120.1 = "NVIDIA NV42"

New card supported in 62.11.

AA quality seems to have dropped a little in farcry, I'm running it at app controlled "medium" in the settings and it's definitely not quite as smooth as it was with the 62.01s, but the tradeoff is that the game plays much more smoothly. Just went through the carrier level again and it ran much better, the highs aren't bigger but the lows are definitely improved which is all I care about.

Probably a 8x1 or 4x1 low/midrange part.

Downloading now, I'll give them a shot. I actually had gone back to the 53.03 set yesterday. Why? Because GR is the main game I play online and any set above 55.xx makes the snowflakes all the same size and huge! I can't see sh*t when playing the maps that has snow! However, I do like the 6x.xx drivers for overall looks and performance.

These are crap! First problem I have had with any driver set. Major lock-up at desktop...could not right-click on anything and could paint desktop with task manager after that! Rebooted 5 times until I finally went into safe mode and reinstalled the 61.72 set! I DO NOT recommend!!

I've treid several sets of drivers today...lots of rebooting, entering safe mode...using driver cleaner, rebooting again...tedious...but after it all, I found what I was using in the first place the 61.71's are the best with my system. Only thing is I used to idle @ 52C after all the drivers I tried, I went back to 61.71 and now I idle @ 55C....nuts...=/ heh,.

Anyone have Splinter Cell with these drivers? Are shadow buffers back?

I have splinter cell I can check, but I do know for some reason since the 62.01's the quality drastically went up.

These drivers seem like every other forceware 6x.xx driver I have used ;)

good for me.

These work for me and work pretty well but I ended up going back to the 61.72s.

Right-click on the desktop instantly freezes explorer.exe. Didn't hose my system, but definately the worst 2d experience I've had. :( Back to 62.01 for me.

That is what it was doing to me JGene and when I tried to install different drivers, it would freeze when I clicked on the drop down box to go to My Documents. They're crap!

These work great for me.

Stable, refresh rate overrides apply correctly, gameplay excellent as always.
