    Why are you complaining anyways, or what are you complaining about?
    All because nvidia release new drivers , doesn't mean they are going to work well with your system, just use a video card that suits and be happy.

    if a dozen thousands of people is few, then you are right. :) no one is forcing you to install this new driver revision. its not a new version. its a revision of the 197 whql.

    and they give us a fix for a game in beta. if thats not good driver support, then I suggest you switch over to ATI ;)

    naaa, i would be happier if they would take care of the real bugs...
    like 1920x1080 @ 60 hz = 16 bit color depth or MPC HC issue or that my monitor isnt reconized in the NVPanel and i cant set it to native resolution, even if i try to make my own resolution, its not working...

    anyway...THX for the News^^

    did i said "thats not a good driver support"?? Read twice before posting. There are many problems that has yet to be solved, they can try fixing that along with a driver, instead a single fix in a driver. Everytime a driver gets released people will think that it might solve their problems and will get annoyed if it doesnt... so its better to add some more fixes with a driver release.



    moreover i know whats better for me, so thanks to ur dumb suggestion.:war:
