Edit: The title of this one is probably a little more appropriate though. The official driver doesn't get mentioned until the 2nd page in the stickied thread.

Does not work correctly with my monitor. I have an Acer AL2032W and it does not allow for me to select monitor scaling when running custom resolutions. Therefore, the image displayed is blurry and stressful to my eyes.

These works fine on my setup. I have yet to bench them. IQ seems a little bit sharper.

any obvious bugs/things broken chaps?? if so post what it is and how to reproduce the bug (usual format) along with your system.

I've got a few things to log/report myself so I might as well make it worth while.

I don't know if this has been already reported here, but the famous texture bug in Guild Wars is finally fixed with these drivers \0/

Installin now, feedback asap, although i tried the Leadtek version in FEAR, Far cry, 3DMK05 and AQ3 and the results were similar to the .89's and .94's as far as performance goes

Release Notes..Issues Resolved in Version 81.95

The following are changes made and issues resolved since driver version 81.94:
Single GPU Issues Resolved
• There is a possible incompatibility between the ForceWare graphics
driver and the current WDM driver.
• GeForce 7 Series: Modifying any Performance and Quality Setting
using the system tray icon turns off Gamma and Transparency
Antialiasing.
• GeForce 6800 Ultra: Textures are corrupted upon the first time
entering a zone in Guild Wars.
SLI-Related Issues Resolved
• GeForce 6 and 7 series, SLI: Updated F.E.A.R. SLI profile to achieve
better SLI performance and compatibility.
• GeForce 6600, SLI: Blue-screen crash occurs when starting a new
game in Civilization 4 with antialiasing enabled in the NVIDIA
control panel.
SLI peeps should be happy with FEAR :)

I just reported that bug to NVIDIA yesterday so it probably isn't fixed yet. Also this driver was build in early Nov so no way for them to retroacitvely fix a bug :p

FEAR is running great with this set. Very stable drivers so far.

From the release notes:

This Release 80 driver includes drivers designed for the following Microsoft® operating systems:
• Microsoft Windows® XP
• Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 Update Rollup2
• Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
• Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004
• Windows XP Professional
• Windows XP Home Edition
• Windows XP Professional x64 Edition

Should I take it that I could install this set on XP MCE 2005 so as to replace the old 77.79 drivers that seem to be the latest available for MCE? Anyone tried it and had any luck?

I doubt it. I'll get an MCE driver is coming around the corner.

Neither does 3DSMax or Lightwave 3d under OpenGL on my dually system. :( This is really starting to piss me off now

My system like this driver set. I was getting random locks, just got down with a 45 minute frag session, no problems.

[pErMan']Hmmmm.... anyone have issues with this yet?

That's listed under the Issues Resolved in Version 81.95 so i read that as being fixed :confused:

ps, i don't have the WDM driver installed

*edit* got a fps boost in AQ3(same result as with the Leadtek version) but scores in FEAR, Far Cry and Doom3 remain the same as with the .89's and '94's
