FEAR 1280x960 4x/16x Everything maxed No SoftShadows
Single Core- 40FPS

The new FW80 drivers family seems always more stable with any new release so i think we can expect an official whql FW80 release in the next weeks.
81.9x ?

I posted this in the 81.82 thread...

I've been experiencing odd behavior with the mouse cursor while working in Windows. For example, when I minimize a window, the cursor occasionally changes from an arrow to a vertical or horizontal resize. The cursor eventually changes back to an arrow when I start using the mouse again. I am using a Logitech MX 1000.

Update: I just checked out the 81.84 release notes and this is a known issue when operating in SLI mode:

GeForce 7800 GTX, SLI: With SLI mode enabled, the mouse cursor image occasionally sticks as the window resize graphic instead of being restored to the pointer graphic.

Thats cool that u dont have to try and report it, at least they already know.

Same to the guy with the 6800 GT / TW 2005 issues - at least they are aware and already working on it :)

Yeah definatly observe that there are alot of open issues.
Something I noticed when upgrading from my last lot... some 7x.xx files were left over and not replaced when I installed 8x.xx so I highly recommend you run www.drivercleaner.net before installing these, reboot and then run setup.exe
