These drivers solve the weird audio distortions and drops out I was getting with the 260.89 drivers thank God!

I was beginning to get worried that Nvidia might have been losing it's touch, but these drivers have restored my faith in the green team

They also seem to perform noticeably better than the 260.89 as well, but that could just my imagination.

thanks for the heads up though.
