I believe www.guru3d.com has quite a lot of old ones. Laptopvideo2go.com has heaps too.

Subtestube is right, Guru3d has a huge archive of drivers.
Nvidia's FTP site also has most of the new ones, with release notes and such,
ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/

NVIDIA still has all their drivers available that were released since 2001.

ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/

EDIT: too slow.

The 61.77 were the first to add Direct X 9.0c support (and therefore bring in Shader model 3 support), so I really wouldn't use the 61.76 drivers.

As for that whole HDR issue, did you make sure the Anti-aliasing was turned OFF in both the Control panel and in-game options?

yah made sure it was off and still wouldnt work though it works on the .76 drivers and on the drivers i had been using with it turned on

thanks the .77s work for both hdr and shadermodel 3.0 and it disables fsaa automatically when hdr is activated

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this but nvidia got rid of their beta driver section on nzone.com. The beta drivers are still on their ftp site of course but not the regular website.

Any idea, why they did that?

No point in having the 71.84 drivers up there, since they add no new features over the 71.89, and have some glaring bugs. It'll probably come back when the Rel75 series is going towards release.
