Default Re: WHQL 280.26 Released

Well, that's not too big of a deal to me. At least it fixed the shadow issues in TF2 and GMod and had no performance impact on said games on my setup - when I upgraded from 276.10 to 275.33 just a few days before the 280.26 drivers were released, I had issues where an object's shadow would render strangely or flicker, the problem seems to be gone with 280.26.

My bigger concern now is with my MCPC box tho. Apparently the latest driver has ACPI issues with the setup and couldn't perform a full shutdown.
