ahh.. come on. you beat my post by 30 secs :p

Edit:
When trying to install the 32bit US version it kept claming that files were missing and asked to insert the Windows XP 64bit Drivers Disk 1. I think their setup might be borked so if anyone else has the same problem, the international drivers worked fine for me.

Umm what does it mean "Enabled Turbo Cache for the 8800 Series?"

and I got the same error.

Yep, english setup is corrupted. However, you still can install them fine by ignoring missing files warnings.

I was wondering about that to guilzard, enabled turbo cache, does that mean it was never enabled in the first place?

Why would you need turbo cache with an 8800 anyway? Maybe the 320mb GTS would need it in some circumstances, but I doubt the GTX would.

i had that same warning in previous driver

you HAVE to completly remove previous driver, and it will not show you that warning.

when i updated from 93 series to 158.19

Yet another official release exclusively for G8x. Last official release for our "legacy" GPUs was exactly 6 months ago = November 2, 2006. How is this neglect considered anything but unethical?

And why is 158.19 the only stickied official driver when it is also exclusively for G8x? A stickied driver should support the entire family of cards or it should be separated and labled G8x or "legacy".

J-Mag, would be nice to know if it is enabled across all 8800 series cards. After reading the release note again it does say ENABLED TurboCache for Geforces 8 series GPUs....????? lol

I think it is only important for the 85 and 86 cards...

NHL 07 - still no option for 1280x1024. Lost that with the 1xx.xx series in Vista.

I guess Nvidia should issue a statement saying all gpus below the 8xxx series will no longer be supported.

I guess working flat panel scalling is vista only now then.

no need to say it... we already knew it as soon as vista and 8800 came out

the inf asks for files that are not provided w/ the drivers. Just remove the entries from the inf and it will not give you the error during install. It's all the same though.

did they fix flat-panel scaling in XP yet? PLEASE tell me they did! I've been waiting since I upgraded from my 7900's in SLI (worked for them, from the get-go)

Edit: well, it looks like they haven't yet...

Not a fix but at least you can get it to work. Better than a wet fish in the belly!

I wonder how/if I could test this.

We do need to say it...and say it loudly...until the day they stop neglecting us. You and other 79xx owners, in particular, should be especially vocal. You poor bastards bought those cards only a few months ago. The point is we (the "legacy card owners") have to put pressure on them everytime they release drivers that neglect us.

True it happens with older cards. I mean believe it or not theres people with the low Ge-Force cards out there that do not have support any more for them. Anyway I guess they could go back to what they were doing, and produce a driver for all the cards in one...? I mean how hard is that really? I guess it would be bigger then...

I agree. Can we sticky drivers for other cards as well?

Hey guys, what is this flat panel scaling people are talking about? I have a flat panel widescreen, and I never have had to use 'flat panel scaling'. What's the use for it?

As for the drivers, I'll give them a run when I get home. Looks like Nvida is doing progress with their driver support on the 8series cards. Thanks for the update.

I just got an error all of a sudden. As soon as I try to edit my EQ2 Profile I get the error. It says its encountered an error with nvidia control panel and needs to close.
