    The only issue I've noticed so far is flickering on my arms/legs in Mirror's Edge, but I haven't played with it much.

    Nice drivers IMO. :)

    I'd noticed that the text on my desktop is not as clear as it was with previous drivers. Glad it's not just me then.

    I noticed a slight FPS increase in WoW, but I also upgraded to the newest DirectX before I launched the game so I don't know if that has any impact as well.

    No offense bro, but how could you notice the difference between 150 FPS and 160 FPS? Lol. :)

    totally destroyed by 3D applications - no game, no demo, no application would work.

    don't know why but i'm back to 182.

    I've tried nHancer as well with the same result.

    I only have BF2 installed but it's disabled globally and my desktop fonts still look fuzzy like Clear Type is enabled. I have a CRT monitor with Clear Type disabled.
    Actually I remember having this issue a couple of years ago, it was to do with dynamic tiling using an ATI Video Card.. There's a couple of posts on TechNet about it also..

    I'm almost inclined to give you the "RTFM"...

    But let me explain it instead...

    This is a new driver that isn't added to RT's database.
    Which means to get full functionality, you need to tweak RT's Power User settings.
    There are plenty of guides made upon that topic, since a lot of people think it's all Nvidias fault or that RT just doesn't work.
    As for bugs, I didn't notice any so far, sorry to bring it in, but in most cases it is an Error 40.
    What ever it is bad driver upgrade routines or overclocking without precaution for consequence...

    As for D3D one guy "stated" that HL2 was OpenGL based, why the old HL got brought in, since he must have gotten things mixed up somewhere.

    re-installed 185.85 again, and for the first time ever with this 750i mobo: I get a confirmation NVIDIA display drivers were un-installled and required a re-boot ! woot!

    In SLI, top card is stuck in 3D Perf mode always after running 3DM Vantage (this is when I launch CPUz, GPUz or RivaTuner to get a screenie), but otherwise, 2D switching seems to work. RivaTuner 2.24 works fine after the tweaks, it could show wrong GPU temps (matched Everest 4.60's "GPU memory temps")

    In 3DM Vantage (Performance preset), 2 or 3 feature tests show huge gains over 182.50, but gpu tests 1 and 2 + total are lower.

    hmm... I seem to be having some issues. I was crashing with the 182's but, with this it seems like stuff is more stutter...y and sometimes while I play crysis it takes a few seconds for my gun to shoot once I held the button down!

    I've had to roll back to the 182s because the AF on these is broken.

    I have the same issues as osx and Dahzeal33:

    Flickering arm and legs in Mirror's Edge, and in Day of Defeat and Team Fort 2 after I am killed and it shows who killed me, it flickers then goes back to normal when i respawn.

    Hope they can correct these with 186 or something...I am fed up with the 185 series.

    Great drivers so far, Photoshop CS4 not recognizing my GPU is fixed!

    All my games work flawless (Crysis, Mirrors Edge, GRID, Braid, Assassins Creed, Riddick, Dead Space, Prince of Persia).

    The only bug I have is with Devil May Cry 4 in DX9, I have no menu at all just the backround, easily fixed running the game in DX10.

    Then I shall give you the "FUAHAD"
    I'm not an idiot, I know it's up to RT to get a fix not nVIDIA. Was jsut concerned, because i never saw this phenomenon before. :banana:

    Does anyone know of a temporary fix for RivaTuner 2.24 on Windows 7 with these drivers?
    I can't force my retarded 9800GTX fan to run at 75% or 100% based on temperatures anymore since I can't use driver level fan control, and it automatically resets to 35-40% all the time.

    Quite big difference, something wrong with 185.85 Far Cry 2 support?
