    The i7 CPUs released in 2008 (e.g. before Christmas) will be $1,000-$1,200 extreme versions only.

    On-topic: Just curious (not a flame) why people with older generation cards rush to install new drivers immediately, when in reality the new drivers are designed to fix issues/performance on current generation. I look for new drivers now with my GTX 280, but with my 8800GTS before once I found a good driver I just stuck with it for a few months at least. No point in trying new betas every few days on a 7600GT/8800GT.

    Anyone getting a problem with the inability to change hardware acceleration settings in Vista32? I can't run Gametap because of it. I've also had the same problem with the 177.92s, and I went to this driver thinking it'd be fixed.

    I went back to vista a months ago, went back to xp. Probably sticking with xp until whenever.

    And the 3dmark vantage,shieet, xp and can do that very easily. I mean look at games like GRID, Oblivion, 3dmark 06 with full blown settings,etc. Xp can easily with my eyes can do all of what I have seen on vista, dx9 might not have some things as dx10 but certainly xp can do thoses no problem whatsoever from what I have seen.

    Hi all,

    I have a 9600GT and am running XP 32-bit SP3 and have issues with creating game profiles with this driver. When I try to add a profile for a game in the "Program Settings", I select the .exe and hit Open and get an error. "NVIDIA COntrol Panel Application, 2.1.270.00 has encountered a problem and needs to close...." etc, etc. When I click for more information about this error it says :

    Error signature

    AppName: nvcplui.exe AppVer: 2.1.270.0 ModName: nvgames.dll
    ModVer: 6.14.11.7813 Offset: 00004ca8


    Has anyone else had this problem? It worked fine in 175.19.

    3DMark06 and Fluidmark scores are down...while MKZ is slightly up.

    Will do some game testing and report back.

    all you whinny little babies need to stop with (the whinning) i bet all your failers with drivers are user based )booo hooo hooo , stop screwinging around when you dont know what youre doing , riva tuner is a great tool , did you think to reset it to the new drivers? things were changed(driver) why wouldnt you have to do the same with your rig. i get the impression that alot of you feel your config is the final word as to what works, well gee if you install a new driver , maybe you should start from scrach on your config, i bet 90%of the "new driver" (not beta) complaints are based on a fool who is trying to emulate some fictious poster. ,

    My old 8800GT saw continuous performance improvement when updating to newer beta drivers. It was well worth updating and trying new drivers.

    I'm using Windows XP SP3 and DV for the 178.13 drivers is broken for me as well, the slider only has 3 settings 33/66/100, and none of those settings have any effect. No big deal for me since I never use DV anyway, just thought I'd add my 2 cents.

    These drivers work great - using vista 32-bit - but i still have the same problem on my gtx280 - AA and AF settings are not changing - WoW settings dont apply and games that have it on wont unapply - the AA seems to be stuck - been this way for the last 5 sets of drivers and 2 reinstalls and driver sweeping and safe mode and reg hacks have not changed it - its like AA is broken for me and i cant figure out why.

    DV not working in any XP x86, where's the config there?

    trust me, my config is perfectly fine, im performance obssese etc...

    oh and u may be missunderstanding, we dont want rivatuner to work with it, we just want it to work (since control panel doesnt work ~~)


    Ok, DV works in XP x86 178.13 with rivatuner, thx to unwinder.

    and btw i also noticed a IQ change, i cant say increase or decrease, im not that pr0, but it changed xP

    well i installed the new drivers on my 2nd setup (8800GTX) and tested Warhead, 3Dm06 and a couple more games, Image quality is indeed sharper and better (especially in Crysis), Warhead did not suffer from flashing fog anymore so its fixed (it used to everytime with the 177 ones), 3dm06 same scores are ever.

    the 177 has been wonder drivers and the 178 now are even better, good job.

    *back to my ATI rig now* :D
