Curious what the difference is between this and the 326.77 (OpenGL dev release)

Will download and test these once I get home. The 326.80 that is, as they seem newer and probably have more useful fixes in regards to gaming.

Guys, did you find an equal -at least- or better than 314.07 driver ( in terms of stability )?

I advised my nephew to stay with that version, but now is time to update I guess... but I wouldn't like to create him problems...

I'd like a general advise...

So these are THE drivers that many people have been waiting for then with fixes for the 36 hour TDR issue (I never experienced this myself) and the Sniper Elite V2/NZA Advanced Shadow crashes? I'm looking forward to installing these as the apart from the minor hiccup of the SLI Profile Tool crashing when exporting/importing with the v326.77 developer beta driver (apparently fixed with an updated version of the app) I haven't had any problems with the r325 drivers at all in any games... which is nice.

Thanks, WhiteLightning, for posting the links.
