Default And there are W98/ME drivers as well!

It used to matter to me, but I've since upgraded to Win2k. But I'm sure many will be pleased with that turn of events.

What's with the Beta again, though? If I want unstable drivers I'll stick with the leaked ones, thankyouverymuch...

Cheers,
JND

I couldn't call the original 40.s unstable...they just had issues. 40.52 seemed perfect...and 40.71 probably will too.

As to why they're still beta, I couldn't say.

Are you kidding me? 14.8 megabytes? That's bigger than the ATI Catalyst even with the added control panels!

And these drivers are probably still considered "beta" because they haven't been WHQL certified yet.

As usual, this thread will be stickied for you all to post your feedback.

These drivers contain international help files for both windows help and controlpanels (nvr*.dll and nvwr*.dll) that's why the size.

That would explain it, but man I wish NVIDIA would release separate English and international versions to make downloading drivers friendly for those of us not blessed with broadband.

Given the size of these drivers I think I'm going to hold off until these get the WHQL cert.

Guys, the release is NOT for Win2k/XP only!!!!!
If you'll go to the drivers tab manually, you'll find the Win9x/ME 40.71 set as well!!!!
