    SLI is well worth it to me since I game at 1920x1200 and many games can tax a single 285 with full IQ settings, to name a few: Crysis/FC2/GTA IV/Mirrors Edge/Warhead/HAWX in DX10

    I mentioned that SLI isn't worth it, becouse one 285 does the job in any circumstance, if you have the money. If your wallet allows you to buy a 8800GT and add one later i bet you have some fun, good performance and value setup. SLI is a decision these days with the latest cards, its not needed anymore

    hahahahahahaha, the 182.46 are another proof that Beta drivers rape WHQL ones. :D

    i just did a few benchmarks on my 2nd rig with a 8800gtx, best performance to date, the 182.06 and 08 whql were $hite.

    keepers for me :D

    Could someone try Dead Space with these drivers? I'm getting nvlddmkm.sys BSOD in the menu if I turn vsync off and run multi-gpu :/

    dunno about Multi-gpu since i dont have it, but i played 30 minutes of deadspace and had no problem, performance was very good as always too.

    no problem in Clear Sky or Hawx (played Hawx on my 2nd rig for 1 hour straight), Stalker CS was fine for 15 min.

    my os is Win64bit .

    Located the problem with Dead Space... apparently vsync off with multi-gpu causes the BSOD in the game. Already sent report to nvidia. will game with one GPU till that.

    They might have fixed these drivers (182.46) for XP but NOT for Vista. Just spent several hours trying to install them on my PNY 7600GS APG video card with NO results. It says their installed, but they are not. Your probably right NeoElNino, but at this stage I'll have to weight a while before That can happen. Hope those guys at Nvidia get these drivers straightened out...

    Vista 64 all good no problems reported yet and a slight increase in fps across the board.

    Windows 7 however I still seem to not be able to beat 3d mark for on the 185.20 alpha drivers. Has anyone else compared these drivers on windows 7 with the 185.20's?

    Wonderful drivers =) Better performance in l4d even if l4d still freezes up, and I have to tab out to desktop and back to make it work. Had that since the beta of the game. I even have different videocard now but it still happens.

    If you are using Multi-Core option enable, try disabling that to increase stability in L4D.

    yep, it is a common bug in all Source games.

    All of the Source games have had beta Multi-Core support which could be enabled through console commands, but the notorious crashing kept Valve from adding it to the actual options.

    I am unable to use Multi-Core in L4D or TF2 (which just recently had it added), due to constant random crashing when enabled. With it disabled I have no crashing at all, I can play for hours on end.

    Yes, but other people I've talked to on the Massgate forums that are having the same problem aren't. At first it appeared to be an issue with NVIDIAs only, but ATIs are getting it too.

    My L4D blue screens with multi-core rendering on, but TF2 runs fine.

    You can also do this in nHancer:
    [​IMG]

    You'll have to enable the L4D profile before starting the game every time, and disable it after playing, or you can set that option in global settings and forget, but then it'll lower driver performance in other games.

    It gives much better performance than disabling the ingame multicore support.
    Proof:

    Milticore rendering disabled ingame:

    Milticore rendering enabled ingame with that single core option set in nHancer:

    Also don't use CSAA. Go with normal multisampling AA.

    BTW setting PCI Latency Timings to 64 in my mb BIOS also helped me with peaks of low fps in source games.
