    One of the open issues is blurry text on a Westy 37LW3. I've yet to see that problem not being fixable on my system BUT it takes a little tweaking to get the display right every time i switch from my Dell 20".

    Watch out, the german Nzone site lists this driver but when you install them it is the 163.69 WHQL pack, same goes for the UK site.

    Have it running, I can overclock w/ Rivatuner and it'd play my latest games.

    They said there's enhance support for World in Conflict, but honestly I don't notice much of improvement.
