    Ok, it seem that windows has gone back to normal when using 174.16 driver. 169.44 is only for those who has Vista and no Vista SP1 because you going to get alot of freeze in sp1 with these drivers.

    LoL that is why people should never assume everyone else has a problem, just because THEY have it.\

    Just installed 1.2 for Crysis, gonna try these drivers later.

    Added 174.12 Crysis v1.2 to benchmarks on post #20.

    I'm sticking with 174.12. It seems the 1.2 patch has added the slight perfomance gains not the 169.44 driver.

    Good. I'll stay with 174.12 too. They are stable as rock on my system, performs very good in all the games I play (I play more than 12 games, I don't need drivers good for only one game) and DV / forced AA / custom profiles / SLI / Dual screen are working fine.
    I know it's a "169.44 thread" not a "174.12 one" but if someone using 8800GT SLI is reading this, just go for the 174.12 :D (Dual boot WinXp x32 + Vista x32)

    For me, UT3 plays horribly with these drivers. The game will pause every 15 to 20 seconds, similar to what 169.25? did. Back to 169.32 for me (Vista x64 SP1)

    I'm getting 20+ FPS in crysis with these very high settings 1680x1050... 64 bit. About a 3-4 FPS gain!!!!!

    Very nice drivers. Great IQ and real nice FPS boost.

    Profiles don't seem to be saving for me though.. atleast WoW profile doesn't work. had to enable AA and AF globally.

    I haven't really been playing much of Crysis lately. So, any improvements noticed with other games? Otherwise I'm sticking with the 17x beta drivers I have for XP/Vista 32 bit. Especially if profiles aren't working.
