Default Re: 8800 GT problem

I recommend using the ones provided by the distribution, no matter what distribution it is.

If you have good reasons for upgrading to newer drivers
(e.g. not supported hardware):
feel free to do so, but please read the instruction thread
on how to install drivers manually.

I also recommend keeping the installer for easy removing
of installed-by-hand-drivers, as your distribution package
management is not aware of these drivers and wont remove them.
(but might install / update / overwrite them with conflicting
drivers)

In Ubuntu you can use envy as well for getting recent drivers,
but please read the instructions on the envy page
on how to remove them _before_ any distro upgrade.
