Forceware 94.24 for Windows XP 32 bit. Old Control Panel.

http://files.filefront.com/9424_32bit_whqlexe/;7705610;/fileinfo.html

The reason for this post is to provide a reliable link to the original 94.24 driver that nvidia had as the official driver, then pulled and replaced with the current one (that says it's WHQL but isn't when you install it). This is the one with the old control panel only and is WHQL. I like this version better and get great performance with it on my 7800GS compared to all the other recent drivers.

I prefer this one over the new official one and this is for others like me who may not be able to find it anymore because even the archive/beta links now point to the new 32 meg version with the god awful new CP. This is the original file in the original Nvidia package. I shortened the name of it a bit because Filefront cuts it off otherwise, but it's otherwise untouched.

I have been using this driver since it's release and think it's the best driver I have used yet for my 7800GS.

I agree. That's why I wanted to stick that first release of the driver out there. Nvidia seems to want it to disappear. Guru3d's link just points to nvidia and the new version with the new control panel and non-whql.

download the reg file, dbl click and you got the old control panel for newer drivers.

I don't want a hacked up old CP in newer drivers, because it doesn't work properly anymore. I want a default old CP! Not to mention, this driver is much better for me than the newer ones.

Tomb Raider Legend 30 second run from main room looking at fireplace into pool room and through the pool. 1152x864 (I have a little 19" CRT monitor), all in game settings maxed without next gen.
