    As I posted on the previous one these drivers are running fine EVR works fine for me though I never use it, they don't seem to be any different performance wise then the past few. All tests were ran under the same settings what I play them at, highest possible setting with acceptable fps loaded the same save/area recorded the lowest and highest fps.

    LOL! It got so bad in the other thread a new one had to be opened. I'm downloading it as we speak. I just installed the Quadro 197.28 drivers & I'm loving them. Lets see how these stack up.

    I tested these vs the 177.40 and i get the same results in Jericho, 1280x1024 everything on high settings(which is max ) , NO AA and frames stay between 50-90. I will test more games at a later time, but so far so good. :)

    Well these work well for me. The image quality isn't quite as good as the Quadro 197.28, but with that I'm getting a fps bump in Assassin's Creed II, There's no MPC-HC stutter with these either. Bad Company 2 is running really smooth w/ these as well. I'll try Dirt 2 & see how it does. Well in Dirt 2 I lost a few fps on the average compared to Geforce 197.13, but the min stayed the same.

    i see we got different mobos but i had crashes in every game with these drivers/480 too so i figured it was my bios as the f12 bios is known to have issues,so i flashed to my favorite bios f5d an no more crashes with these drivers,so you may wanna try that
