latest 275.15. Not WHQL though. You will have to go back to 197.75 and lose some performance for WHQL which isn't worth it. WHQL, they might as well call them 197.75 balls edition. Cause it doesn't mean anything, I find the betas always work better and are more stable than WHQL anyways.

:nono: Tsk, tsk Doc. You of all people should know that WHQL doesn't matter.

I don't know if you use nHancer or not, but if you do, you're going to have to use the 197.xx drivers until an updated version of the program is released. The Quadro 197.90 drivers have been getting good reviews. I've got them downloaded and will try them later. You can get the drivers from NVIDIA and a modified .inf from Laptopvideo2go.

I have heard the downside to the 275.15 driver is that it's not compatible with nhancer.

Yep the 257.15's are good. They boosted the 480's performance up in BC2.

I don't play BF2, but the 197.90s with a modded .info have been awesome. I play Mirror's Edge all the time, and these drivers have been fabulous. Better than the 257.15s, I dare say. No other big problems to report either.
