Honestly this is why my nvidia based video cards are only BFG and evga. If something bad happens you never have to worry about it.

Maybe try calling XFX?

Wow, that's a cool upgrade for free!

I have had some green screen/sound loop lockups with my GTX 260 under the 181.22 driver. I downgraded back to the 178.xx series and all is well again.

Maybe try going back to 178.xx and see if the issue persists?

been playing all day with my gtx 260 with no crashes with the 178.24.but why does my gtx260 have issues with the 181.20 or the 180.48 drivers now if I didn't have any problems before?
