As the title says, which current driver are you using?

Also, please state the reason for using whichever you use.

Edit: It appears slightly more at this point use the 82.65's over the 82.12's...if you do as well please explain what is better about the 82.65's. Thanks

82.12. Because it works fine, just like all the others.

82.12 because of good performance and IQ without the random freezes 81.98 gave me.

81.98 because they're the official drivers and everything is working fine with them. Some of the later ones, number-wise anyway, also appeared to have an older date-stamp and I usually try to run the latest. Edit: After seeing the later date-stamp on the 82s, I may give them a shot. I initially thought they were older than the 81.98s.

I only use WHQL driver.
I dont want to install BETA driver.
I used the 81.95.
Then I tryed the 81.98 : they are as fast as the 81.95 with a lot of debugs.
So I use now the 81.98 WHQL driver.

Nevertheless I have some bug in America's Army and GTR with the 81.xx drivers (watch topics in the forum). I hope that the next official release will correct these bugs.

82.65, because they're stable for me.
Before that 82.12, and before that 78.03 and 78.05 because everything in 8x.xx would BSOD.
I got tired of troubleshooting it, stuck with what worked, and looks like it was something fixable on their end. So yay.

82.65 is WHQL. Don't know if it will solve your issues because I don't play AA or GTR. Anyways, I'm using 82.65 because it's only 5 days older than the official beta 82.12 and WHQL (like I give a rat's ass). I also wanted to test the new Driver Cleaner 1.3. Installed fine and see no real difference compared to 82.12. I don't expect much (difference) from FW anymore because the emphasis is now on dual-core this and that, SLI this and that, 7800 GTX this and that.

81.98 because they're the official drivers and everything is working fine with them.Same here. Finally got a real nice set. I tried the 82.12s but in the waste recycling facility in Quake 4, the human gore that's at the bottom of the dump pipes had tiny flicking lines on it when viewed from certain specific angles (yes I am one picky, picky wh0re).

That was the only bug I found, and it's only in that one specific place in the entirety of Quake 4, yet it's fixed in 81.98.

Everything else is beautiful on the 81.98s as well.

Thanks for passing along the info. I was going to try the 82.12s soon but now I think I'll pass. :)

82.12 here. i installed them thinking that my World of Warcraft crashes come from the video drivers. i was wrong. it still crashed, but it was a hardware conflict with a wireless card. i solved it and now it's everything fine. i'll keep them untill next whql from nvidia.

Right now, I'm using 81.98, it seems to work just fine for now. I'm not gaming that much for the time being, so I'm not entirely sure if it works with every game I have tho.
