    Heaven sake, when it rains it pours!

    So far so good, but ever since the 169 series to get aa+hdr to work without crashing in oblivion I have to make a duplicate profile using nhancer and then use the 'oblivion hdr+aa' aa compatibility mode as it doesn't allow changing of preset profiles otherwise.

    Performance almost identicle to 171.16/17 , maybe slightly better, fan also working normaly.

    Hi there, sorry it's just a force of habit really from other forums. Tell you what, I'll stop posting my name when you find your spell/grammar checker, deal? :D

    Last time i check, i dont get paid to use grammar checking on the internet and if i was getting paid then i start using right grammar. and also really what the point of putting your name at the end, its the most stupid thing i ever see on the internet. this is a forum not a letter to put your signature in.

    What a weak response. Just because you don't get paid doesn't mean you don't need to practice the right thing.

    Anyway, the 171 drivers perform much better on my system (WinXP 32-bit) than the 160's do. Recommended at least trying this or any other 171 driver.

    Good luck :p

    1. Why practice using grammar online when 99.9% of people on the internet dont even use it. if i want to use grammar i go to college or go to law school.

    2. 173 drivers are the best say my friend. with the new things Nvidia add in the 173 drivers make that driver worth downloading. Ati need to do this also and stop making 80mb drivers with 5 processes in the backround and crappy uninstalling, this is why i dont like Ati because of that.

    I've tested these thoroughly with Unreal Tournament 3, and I'm averaging about 64fps. I have a chart comparing this to 171.17 and older drivers on my Website (no registration required):

    Forceware 171.23 Beta: 64.17fps avg over 9 runs with UT3 Benchmark Tool
