I am also finding them the most solid set since 178.xx. I can play Fallout 3 for hours on end without a crash in Windows 7 with these...

So far, I've only tried Mirror's Edge and from the moment it loads, there are flashing horizontal bars across the screen and plenty of tearing in-game. Last night, with the 180.48 (IIRC), it ran without glitches. SLIed 8800GTs 512MB.

Update: Just tried to launch Fallout 3 and it crashed before even getting to the menu. I played for five hours straight last week. Buh-bye to this drivers.


UPDATE: I rebooted and then played FO3 for an hour without a hitch. It only gacked when I docked my PDA and an appointment pop-up from Outlook minimized the window and it couldn't restore. Mirror's Edge is running nicely, too. Looks like a false alarm.
