What are your expiriences with the nvidia drivers?

i got a boost of 15 fps after updating from 66.93 to 71.20.
67.02 was about 3 fps slower that 66.93

the problem with 71.20 -> cant enable all 16 pipes of my msi-6800-td128 because the driver is unsopported in rivatuner

i'm running 71.20s on 16x1, 6vp. rivatuner says they aren't supported but doesn't seem to mind keeping it all unlocked anyway.

While 67.03 aren't the fastest drivers out there, they are the most bug free. No problems in any game I play and with the LOD bias clamp, HL2 looks about as good as it possibly can. I'm going to wait for an official release before I move up to the 7x.xx series.

71.20 has some funny bugs with CS:S and de_aztec: Glowing grass (xmastong)

Where can I find the 67.03 drivers from?

Or, you can get the Extreme G version of 67.03
Here's the link:

Keep in mind that you'll have to register with Valance Studios to get these drivers.
I'm using the Extreme G version of 67.02, it's rock solid & fast.

Btw, this post should have been made in the drivers section!!!
