    I gained almost 400 points over the last windows 7 drivers for X64 platform.

    I am going to try other games. So far good drivers for windows 7.

    worst win7 build you could be on that was leaked. considering changing clean install to a more recent/rc one.

    not available in xp. only vista upwards. 8 series upwards.


    On the drivers, finally a driver set i can replace 182.50's with.

    L4D doesn't freeze anymore.. all other games work great.


    Control panel still loads slow.

    nvm fixed it with driver sweeper.

    tried both cod4 and waw without problems, still got to try more coz i experienced a fps drop in some situations, while in general its a bit better than 185.85 for me.

    This set runs perfect with Age of Conan at DirectX 10 on Windows 7 build 7100, even performance is great with 2 ingame feature turned off.
    Those are bugged in the games 3D engine anyway, so not a big deal.
    So now it must be Funcom's turn to sort the last small DX10 rendering bugs out.

    Using the international version, and did not use driver sweeper!
    Since I had problems with Driver Sweeper messing around on Vista a few times, even if I only asked it to remove the nvidia graphic driver.
    So instead I use nvidias recommended way of installing drivers, and manually delete the old dirs from the driver store.

    to all of you having driver issues. please try driver cleaner and or sweeper. in this simple steps.

    1. go to control panel and remove/delete all nvidia related drivers/software.
    2.reboot into safe mode.
    3.run driver cleaner and or sweeper while in safe mode and choose to erase nvidia stuff.
    4. reboot to normal windows.
    5. install the latest drivers of your choice.
    6.reboot into normal windows.
    7. enjoy your gaming experience WITHOUT overclocking your videocards for the sake of testing purposes.
    8. post back here if that didnt work.

    Hmmm...
    Got no problems with these.

    Installing smoothly (with CP of course) over the default 185.93 WHQL (preinstalled by Win7 build 7201 x86).
    They have very good IQ and the performance ist nearly equal to previous 185'-driver...

    No promblems with FC2 (not patched to 1.03).

    And for example 3DM Vantage:
    (performance@1920/1200)

    Code:
    W7-7127   W7-7201
    185.85    1867.08
    
    .         .      
    0         0      
    3603      3590     -0,4% (GPU-Score)
    32156     32607    +1,4% (CPU-Score)
    
    GPU-Tests
    11,11     11,02  
    9,98      9,99   
    
    CPU-Tests
    1498,10   1540,49
    116,73    117,83 
    
    Feature-Tests
    548,05    548,01 
    3,17      3,17   
    19,94     19,92  
    23,21     22,28  
    27,64     27,41  
    26,94     26,92  
    No real difference either...
    ...OK, physX performs a bit better it seems.

    So give 'em a try!

    Razor

    [EDIT]

    - 3D-Vision ist disabled by default (and shoud be, if you do not have displays/googles for this)
    - AmbientOcculsion is disabled by default (and as only usable with Win6.x - Vista/Win7, D3D10-capable cards and specific games)
    - no "right-klick-lag"... never had beforde also
