Wrong forum man. (newb) :bash: :angel2:

The 81's seem to work pretty well for most.

OK, first of all, we have an entire forum dedicated to Forceware drivers. In there is some pretty deep discussion about nearly every single 6800-supported set to date. It might take you a while, but a bit of reading will make you better educated. If you want specifics, use the search function (that's why it's there).

And now for the same answer I've given for the umpteen billionth time someone has asked this question: the best drivers are whatever works best for your particular system. No drivers give the same results because of the various combinations of hardware. If you want a safe bet, use the drivers that are available on nvidia.com. Otherwise, use good old fashioned trial and error with the myriad of beta sets that are available to determine which ones you like the best.

I agree with everyone else.

Try the 66.81. If they make my old card faster, I'm certain it'd make yours faster too.

66.81 for speed.
65.73 for stability
