163.11 because it's the only one I installed.

I would like to know which runs DX10 in SLI better - assuming there is a difference.

They both ran about the same for me with 163.11 being a bit better with the WiC beta so, I'm going with the 163's as it's a higher number.

So does 163.11 incorperate the fixes for Lost Planet as well as WiC? I plan to play both! :D

.11 is pure 8, while the .22 is for 6/7.

163.11 does not contain Lost Planet Optimizations although I do not understand the reason behind this.

I will keep though because its the newest available.

Well in another thread I saw the .11 gave a 20FPS increase anyway (In LP). So I think I'll go with the .11s for now. They are pure 8 after all :D

I tried both sets - it seemed to me the 163.11 was faster in Lost Planet DX10 with SLI than the 162.22. CoJ was about the same in DX10 and my 3dMark06 score was about the same. I think I will stick with the 163.11 for now.

163.11. Because it is for series 8 only.

Why is that a good reason?

We can mod the inf but I checked the changelog and it was all 8800 fixes so no need :)

FEAR XP finally works with these drivers!

Nvidia recommends using 163.11 only if you are running World in Conflict beta. Otherwise the 162.22 the preferred choice. They released the 163.11 because the 163.11 drivers contain specific DX10 fixes for said software.

So looks liek the .11's are teh winners? Caek for all! :D

Lost Planet seems the same for me as the 158.45s, I have tried the .22s yet. I might give them a shot when I settle in to play Lost Planet proper. Right now I have NWN2 to catch up on and WiC beta to get in a play before it closes again.

Because it's what I have at my PC? :)
If I had a series 7 card, I would probably install 162.22
But that's just me :)

Well the .11s do as advertised. WiC is running fantasticandlooksgreat.

I'm running 163.11 because 3 is higher than 2 and 11 is half of 22.
