what are you talking about? :headexplode:

make an option where?

drivers have DX10 SLI support for quite a long time, just DX10 SLi is different from DX8, DX9 etc..

last time i checked in nvapps.xml there are profiles for Call of Juarez DX10, LostPlanet DX10. Company of Heroes DX10 is missing.

ALSO SLI VALUES FROM DX9 WILL NOT WORK IN DX10.

RENAMING EXE WILL ALSO NOT WORK.

Hacked up profiles nothing offical for the 8800 mate, what I want to know is when the 8800 will have support for sli with dx10 games that is offical. Last I looked there drivers said for the 8800 there is no support sli with dx10 games, so lets stick with nvidia drivers and not hacks shall we.

There is no difference between Beta and Certified drivers, I have seen Certified drivers have far more issues then their beta counterparts.

True enough but my luck with betas have been the opposite, except for the 87 or 88 driver release but they quickly fixed it.

EDIT: Also I realize my terminology was off saying offical I should have said certified, please pardon my confusion.
