    wow.. been played Dragon Age this weekend (the DLC though cause I already finish the main game.. played Leliana's Song, Darkspawn Chronicles, and Golem of Amgarrak) and didn't find any problem at all.. maybe the problem isn't the driver mate..

    Its weird because BC2 and Modern Warfare 2 are just fine, as well as KOTOR.

    My specs are perfectly fine, and my overclocks are not high, but they are stable.

    Same here, best drivers yet, was impressed. I wasn't expecting much when I installed them, but man most stuttering and weird frame spikes went away in SLI.

    My GTX460 worked flawlessly with the 259.32 drivers. If you're having problems with that driver, it's your hardware.

    Auto setting defaults to GPU if a capable graphics card is installed and defaults to CPU if a non-capable card is installed (8400GS, GT210, 9400GS, etc)....

    Not picking, but you should update yer profile so it's not as confusing. :)

    For me, these gave better scores in Vantage and Kombustor, but TessMark crashes (first blackscreen, then bluescreen with a nvlddmkm.sys error).

    I went back to 259.32.

    The 260 driver is supposed to release this Wednesday, correct?

    I was playing Splinter Cell Double Agent last week and had these crackling issues all through it. movies played fine in WMP.. i am guessing this has to do with the HD audio driver but this release doesnt have a audio driver. so i guess we have to wait till the next release for it to get fixed.

    They updated your Nvidia Settings Update Manager new file daemonu.exe. and some more files in C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA Updatus - that's on the x64.

    This driver are good but seem to have funny issue if i try to disable the HDMI Audio in the control panel i have seriously funky colors until i re-enabling it, others things seems good and working.

    Hmmm I'm not sure why people are having problems with these drivers. They perform just the same as 259.32 for me. Infact I don't see a difference between the two sets of drivers.

    i just installed these and the good thing is that they have Alien Swarm and LostPlanet 2 profile,

    anyway im gonna test them now:nerd:

    edit: they're as fast as 259.32 and little smoother too;

    i've tested 3dmark vantage and got few points more, RE5 also a little boost 1fps lol, Dirt2 1-2fps more, Heaven 2.0 bench same but faster than anything from 25x series, Lostplanet2 1-2fps more, FFXVI bench same old spikes but it felt a bit smoother and as fast as 259.32..

    but X3TC has a problem, background music is missing.. im reinstalling it just to be sure but i think it worked fine before.:pc1:

    Gained 6fps min, 3fps average and 6fps max over 258.96 in DoW2: Chaos Rising's built-in benchmark on Ultra quality settings. It's awesome that G200b is still getting performance improvements. Guess I'll hang onto these while I wait for the DX7 fix drivers.
