Terrible drivers for BioShock on my 7800 GTX. I don't know if it's because it doesn't detect my STEAM games and doesn't load the BioShock profile, or if it just stutters and lags because NVIDIA doesn't care about 7 series customers. The 169.44 run BioShock smooth, these make it lag and stutter and freeze constantly. It's unplayable. Everything else runs OK, but Windows still feels a little slower.

These are identical to the BETA 175.16's? If so, then you still can't set separate resolutions in Clone...

Hey guys when I install these drivers and restart my pc, my monitor goes into power save mode as if it werent getting a signal. I tried switching the DVI cable to all 4 different dvi connectors on the cards but no luck. I booted into safe mode and reinstalled the 174.74. Im running Vista 64. Any Ideas on this problem? Apparently Vista boots up fine, but no display.

Its a slider under COLOR, really makes a HUGE difference in color brightness on LCDS. I love it. I just installed the official drivers and it still doesnt work.

To get DV to work...just disable SLI, change the DV (it will now work) and hit Apply and then enable SLI again.

Meh...I've been sticking with the 169.44's. They're the only drivers that work well with every game I've got installed. Later drivers including these beta give better performance in some games but also cause a lot of problems for quite a few other games. Boo on nVidia driver development.

Well i got these to install, but really wasnt worth it.
With SLI enabled these drivers introduced crackling and pops in the sound during gaming.
I reinstalled the 174.74s and ill probably stick with them for abit.
