Hey kev1.. plop in the 23.12s
Youll see an higher 3dmark then even the 40.71s

Why.. because nvidia has been sacraficing fps for other features like triangles and pixelshaders ever since the 23.12s were released.

I got a 205 boost using the 40.71's vs the 30.XX's. Am at mid 9K in 3DMark2001SE with these drivers.

Only problem was AGP 4X which was resolved by upping the AGP Drive Strength to DE instead of AUTO in the BIOS.

tried the 40.71's yesterday and found them to be slower in games and caused some texture corruption when running video with Windows Media Player. Back to the 40.52's. they are the best 40.xx series drivers for my setup thus far.

UT2k3 runs better than I would have thought with this set. Excellent quality and solid performance all the way around. I'm very pleased with these drivers so far.
