If anyone has a 550 ti or 560, the best driver which is the most stable for all games to use is the 301.42
http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-wi...ql-driver.html

Fixes all my problems and i have been using it for a long time now.

I'm using 326.98 with good results but I haven't been playing any graphically agressive games lately so I can't really say if they're the best latest drivers, per say. Mostly Saints Row IV and Final Fantasy XIV.

326.98 are the best for me so far, Asus GTX780 Standard Edition. Splinter Cell Blacklist, Grid2, SR4, and BF3 are all running great! Without any issues.

But anything under 300 series don't have FXAA, ewww how can you use them.
Games run so much better with FXAA enable, its like if you turn it off the game runs choppy.

326.80b or 320.78quadro...
Finally got rid of the blackscreen issue with 326 sets.
Had to up the memory by at least +100.At +150 and +200 screen gets tunnel vision and leave pwr. slider at default.Now at 1215 mhz core and 3206 mhz memory on both.Far Cry 3 and benches are uber smooth with 326.80b.

I've been sticking with 311.93 which is under the same branch as the more stable 314.22 only more recent, in comparison to 32x.xx. Runs new games like Saints Row 4 just fine, no FPS drops and such, and more importantly no lock-ups.

I haven't tried the 326.98 yet, but I've run all the others. I still find the 320.18's to be the fastest and the smoothest. The IQ of other sets are better, especially the 326.80's, but I mostly play fps' and for me, framerate > all. After framerate comes driver smoothness to maintain accuracy. 320.18's are tops there too. I've read all the issues guys have had with them but haven't had a single one aside from BF3 artifacting which is easily cleared up flushing the texture cache.

I'd rather smear butter across my monitor. Same blurry effects, better taste.

780 sli scaling seems to be wacked at the moment, whatever driver I choose the % usage of the cards is never 99% 99%. Crysis 3 seems to get very close but still not at peak. Its particularly not good in BF3. Although it runs well, the usage is all over the shop.

Just use the current whql, the new whql is just around the corner.

I'm using the 301.42 with FXAA Enable, in seamonkey which i use the text is kinda blurry, but not alot. In games, the same depending on the game. But they fixed that problem in drivers above 301.42. So i am not sure why you still see blurry images or text using fxaa if you're not using the 301.42.

In SC: Blacklist the difference between fxaa or txaa and msaa is dramatic. The shader based aa just sorta blurs the entire screen. I tried fxaa in Tribes Ascend and it really blurred the text so bad you couldn't read it, but I can't recall what set I was using back then? It was a while ago.
