    These drivers are really amazing, jericho runs great, Crysis even runs good, Hellgate London at Max Settings with Full AA runs between 55-114fps, even tho it does drop to around 30 when fighting, which is normal. Also it fixed some stuttering and visual problems with this one racing game i am playing. So far so good!

    Well for the past i don't know when i have been using either the 177.70 or the drivers from my card disc 181.20. Both drivers work really the same, but have video playback issues and well not up to date, recently i made a thread about how the new drivers work better with my 9800gt now because of deleting the data files from the game which i have been playing and also uninstalling the drivers in the proper way.

    But anyways, compared to what version? Pretty much all of the 197 drivers which i have tested. The 197.45 drivers are not good because a few racers which i was playing was having horrible frame rates, the 197.68 drivers was good for gaming, but i kept getting BSOD's everywhere, the 197.58 i never tested, but so far compared to the rest, the 197.75 seems to work great and fixed a framerate issue i was having with a race game, both playing and recording.

    That isn't a bug, at least not an Nvidia bug.

    Ok i take back what i said lol, those video problems with the 181.20 are just i can't watch videos in HD on youtube or Hulu very good, but normal Quality is fine, which is fine.

    So anyways any of the 197 drivers that i have tested runs games pretty good, also to mention running any of the apps from " GPU Cap Viewer " whoa horrible frames, talking about in their 20' or 40's. So i go back to using the 181.20 and i get way over 1000 , in the cel shading one i get 1400, and games still run much smoother and faster. So i guess i was right all along, its best to use the drivers that actually shipped with your card for best performance. I am staying away from any of these 197 drivers, because they are not suited for my card. On another note, i guess when the 200 series of drivers come out, i will test them out, just to see how they perform. But its back to the 181.20.

    I hace downloaded the 197.75, and the 197.57 inf. used
    modded the version string to 197.75.

    Metro 2033 run smooth now, no glitches and stuttering anymore.
    All Settings Full open.
    System index increased from 7.2 to 7.3 in both the scores of the videocard
    messearing.

    On a Asus 275GTX card, also on my older computer with a Asus Gt220
    From 6.1 to 6.2 score.

    These are keepers for me .:banana:

    If you use a modded inf from this web site: http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/159-19x-series-geforce-driver-releases/

    And follow these instructions:

    1. Uninstall your current driver through the control panel. (http://img42.imageshack.us/img42/249...ninstall1d.gif and http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/8...uninstall2.gif)
    2. Restart and boot into safe mode (F8). (http://www.computerhope.com/issues/chsafe.htm)
    3. Run Driver Sweeper and maybe even CCleaner. (http://www.guru3d.com/news/guru3d-dr...205--released/ and http://www.ccleaner.com/)
    4. Restart and boot to the regular desktop.
    5. Decompress the downloaded driver and copy the modded inf into that folder.
    6. Run the setup.exe you can find in that folder.
    7. Restart.
