Adds full support to whole G80 family models (i.e. from 8800Ultra to 8300GS).
Nothing more I think.

Only difference is modes.txt and the nv4disp.inf is not really a new Driver.

Heh, just force install them with device manager. I do it all the time ever since GeForce 4 Titanium... you don't even have to change the INF...
Select 8800 GTX as "your" card and install it anyway. Works the same just name in task manager will be 8800 GTX instead your real 7800 GTX. But it's just name and nothing else.

I wonder how many good drivers I missed out on in the past because I didn't know that. :p

Its not that i cant install it, it's that the driver is optimized for GF8, meaning driver might work or give more or same problems for gf7 series or other uses...and i hate swapping out my HDD to test it out -.-..ill wait for the proper GF7 release lol
