    Nvidia Freak...

    173's don't work on Windows XP (right now anyway), hence why I didn't mention them. But -personally- right now, the 171's are superior for Windows XP.

    YOU JUST SOLVED MY OBLIVION CRASHING PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

    All this time, I racked my brain trying to figure out what was causing Oblivion to crash... I thought it couldn't be the drivers because it happened in all the drivers that I tried (I didn't stop and realize that they were all 1.69). I thought it was my video card, so I downclocked it and even reflashed it to new bios; I even downclocked my FSB....

    I couldn't figure it out and now you just gave me the answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are a wonderful human being. :kissin::cheers::kiss:

    THANK YOU

    just tried this and it seems pretty good .. not much of an increase from 171.16 , but after a long time i did notice "better colors" with this driver ...

    These drivers are ace .The control panel is sweet and profiles working, lets just hope this is a sign of things to come with 171.... drivers.

    No, just edit the inf file. It worked VERY well on my 7950GT.

    Because when I read what people like you write on the Internet, it takes me twice the time to understand and then my head hurts.

    These driver's are a vast improvment over the 169.21's , the pre render add-on is a god send to SLI overclocker's, Thank you.

    I just learned how to mod today! I did both 171.17 and 171.23 by following the guru3d mod post and snipping the appropriate sections of data from another, working inf of a working install package.

    Read the sticky here: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=171843

    It was easy and kinda fun!

    Yes, Pieter from laptopvideo2go, as usual :)

    http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=17435

    Can anyone tell me if the AA bug is gone for good in this driver version? (forcing AA for a specific game profile not working)

    It was the reason I stopped at 169.13.

    Thanks!

    Well dude, I did exactly the same! I'm using 169.13 since a while lol. And here are the great news: profiles are working :D (including SLI)
    I can use AAx4 in UT3, with better performance than 169.13. I tested CoD4 too, fun perfectly. I tried almost all releases since 169.13, and this is the first time I'm not rolling back.

    Oh btw .. at default the driver only supports the following :

    Code:
    NVIDIA_C77.DEV_0848.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 9200"
    NVIDIA_C77.DEV_0849.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8200"
    NVIDIA_C77.DEV_084A.1  = "NVIDIA nForce 730a"
    NVIDIA_C77.DEV_084B.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8200 "
    NVIDIA_C77.DEV_084C.1  = "NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI"
    NVIDIA_C77.DEV_084D.1  = "NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0191.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0192.1  = "NVIDIA G80-200"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0193.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_0194.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_019D.1  = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600"
    NVIDIA_G80.DEV_019E.1  = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0400.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0402.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0403.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600GS"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0404.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_040A.1  = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 370"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_040D.1  = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_040E.1  = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 570"
    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_040F.1  = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0420.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400 SE"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0421.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0422.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS "
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0423.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8300 GS"
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_0424.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS  "
    NVIDIA_G86.DEV_042F.1  = "NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290"
    NVIDIA_G92.DEV_0600.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512"
    NVIDIA_G92.DEV_0607.1  = "NVIDIA G92-240"
    NVIDIA_G92.DEV_0611.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT"
    NVIDIA_G92.DEV_061A.1  = "NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700"
    NVIDIA_G98.DEV_06E0.1  = "NVIDIA G98"
    NVIDIA_G98.DEV_06E2.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400"
    NVIDIA_G98.DEV_06E4.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS   "
    So for other cards u'll have to modify the inf file ..
