If everyone said everything is PERFECT would there be anything to discuss?? I'm saying in DX11 with the new driver I see know gain, but if that does not work for you, here ya go, These drivers are the bomb I'm seeing 10000000 FPS!

If your CPU is at stock you probably won't see any gains with driver improvements due to being bottlenecked.

Ya I know the 9550 is next on my wish list and then it will be the huge step up to the next generation which by the time I take it will be old school. I'm trying to keep up........
This board overclocks realy well and I had no issues with OC'ing the CPU so maybe I will experiment some more with it. Thanks.

Not DX11, but I am getting alot of CTD from Dirt 2.

I don't have Dirt 2, but after installing these I had a few CTDs and lockups. Rolling back the physx driver seems to have fixed that.

So far I've tested-

Batman AA
Metro 2033
GoW
AVP
L4D

-with no crashes or lockups. The DX11 titles are smooth with good IQ. Oh, GTX 470 and Win7 64bit.

you seemed to had the same issue.

for some reason in this 257.15 driver, physx sometimes fails to install correctly.

just a heads up to anyone reading this, if you have issues, uninstall and reinstall physx.

Yep, actually picked up on this after reading your issue with it in the other thread. Thanks.
