Oh, wow, 200MB? That's a first.

It's those darn internation sets, they are huge. Just go to Geforce.com and get the set for your region.

Yeah, I know, it doesn't matter really, I can wait that one minute, it's just the size, that caught me by surprise.

i don't like international sets, sometimes when you install them and then update with english sets bunch of extra international files stay over.

On Win 7?

I'll be installing 7 tonight or tomorrow. I use a second display and I'll post results.

I was surprised that Win 8 installed the 296.17 by default last night while installing the preview too.

Ok, I'll let you know. I'm using the 295.73s on a 560m at the moment. Second display via hdmi.

Heh, just remembered, when I first hooked this monitor up I thought there was an issue until I remembered to switch inputs in the monitor's menu. :lol:



EDIT: no problems with the second display here on the 296.10s

Do you mean no display at all, or can't play a video in a window (e.g. DVD or YouTube)?

I have my desktop running quite happily on 2 monitors, and pretty sure I have watched video on the 2nd monitor too... :confused:

Same here.

These are hands down the best drivers I've tried on my laptop, keepers for now.

So far:
Alan Wake
AVP 2
L4D
Doom 3 with wulfen and sikkmods
SS3 BFE
Skyrim

No more flashing/corrupted menus, no display driver not responding (yet) and the same performance and IQ as the 295.73s, which did pretty well for me.

Very nice

Update: I used to have DirectX (DirectDraw) set as video output in VLC because it brought tearfree playback on the second display.

Now video playback on second display only works with DirectX if "YUV->RGB conversions" is unchecked but i still get tearing.

If i use "Standard" video playback it works but it tears.

So, what i have to do now is disable the primary display completely to get acceptable tearfree playback on the TV.

Not the end of the world but still annoying.
