    I haven't had much luck with the 185.xx series, but I'll try these out anyway. Any Control Panel issues with these for anyone?

    I've just installed these WHQL's and both evga precision and nhancer are working in Vista 64 - also evga voltage tuner is working again without needing the nvapi_18208 file from the old driver set

    i like it when things work :)

    Can you let us know as soon as possible - I still am using 182.50 - And I know what you mean about the filtering bug NVIDIA should be sued for this bloody sh*** - That is misleaing and cheating - they force filtering despite setting everythng full quality in CP - that is downright bloody cheating - shame on you NVIDIA you wankers ! All this crap about up to 42% increase, what a load of sh*te - they cram performance by affecting IQ, they MASK their crappyness, poorly optimized drivers and bloody R&D mistakes by sneaking this one on us, it makes me very upset I didn't pay good money for a graphic card only to have it crippled so I can get 42% boost in speed for f* sake I didn't ask for that !

    another driver that doesn't let me assign my 9800gt for dedicated physx card with 280SLI set up.

    the only driver that allowed me to do this was 185.68
    maybe Nvidia removed PhysX GPU acceleration with multi-GPU 'AND' sli mode for some reason.
    upgraded from 9600gt to 9800gt for physx card recently and today nvidia has provided me some nice present:giggle2:

    I was enjoying Mirror's edge with rock solid 60fps(1920 1200 very high, physx on, 8X AA, vsync on)... wonder why they removed it and WHY the driver recognized the total of 3 cards(SLI with another) for god's sake.

    well... at least a voltage tuner is working, now I can do some wild goose chases again...

    Yeah rivatuner doesn't like these drivers.It doesn't recognize them at all so no fan profiles unfortunately.And i don't get it why the default nvidia drivers can't handle the fan.I remember it used to work back in October when i first bought GTX 280.After a while the fan stayed stuck in 40%.Thank God rivatuner exists.

    Anyone know if these work with the older AGP cards? None of the 18x.xx series have recognized my card (BFG 7800 GS AGP) and the NVidia Control Panel has not loaded on them. Currently the last stable driver that I've been using is the old 178.24.

    Maybe modified drivers will be able to fix the context menu lag..... hopefully.
    And we need a new version of rivatuner!

    It's quite strange, it is said :

    "Automatically installs the new PhysX System Software version 9.09.0408."

    I have checked, it is the former version 9.09.0203 which has been installed.

    Not you ?

    Thanks.

    And yes a new version of RivaTuner would be awesome :D

    Like all other 185.xx drivers i've downloaded, this one also has problems with multiple displays when logging on after install.. it sets my tv downstairs as the primairy display and expands my desktop to my normal monitor, so i only see my background...
    So i had to correct it by using the tv, only to find out all my icons were messed up aswell..

    Also rivatuner does not support these drivers, the CP loading time is still way too long PLUS i don't see any real performance improvements in any of my games.

    Wow ... first driver I've installed on XP32 that loaded automatically and didn't even need a reboot. I'm impressed. :)

    Installs the previous version of PhysX, not the new one

    I even went as far as removing ALL nvidia drivers, DLL's and traces of both display and PhysX drivers from the system in safe mode, rebooted, reinstalled Drivers, still reports previous physX driver instead of new one

    Still no Control Panel. There is a file called NvCplSetupEng.exe, but when I try to install it I get "Setup failed to read the required Display Driver to be used with this package."

    Seriously? It's the same driver you came with. NVIDIA is getting as bad as ATi used to be with these POS drivers.

    It is PhysX 9.09.0408 that is installed, it's just a typo which was mentioned somewhere.

    It does work, I've been getting BSOD's in BF2, so I can't say they are all that great.
