    I hope that is a sign of agreement, either that or I'm in banana prison. ROFL!

    This driver is no good for me. The control panel is broken and I cant enable sli when I do get the control panel to work. Ive used driver sweeper v 2.5 before install and uninstalled the previous driver.

    So acording to official nVidia developer site, this drivers don't support GYX460? Anyone?

    if you do test them then i have to warn you about 2 things;

    1. you will have to mod inf [nvdw.ini] with your gpu

    if you use 64bit then add these lines;
    for win vista
    [NVIDIA_SetA_Devices.NTamd64.6.0]

    %NVIDIA_DEV.0615.01% = Section004, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0615

    ----------
    for win7
    [NVIDIA_SetA_Devices.NTamd64.6.1]

    %NVIDIA_DEV.0615.01% = Section003, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0615

    ----------

    NVIDIA_DEV.0615.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250"



    2. and you will have to rename nvinfo.file to nvinfo.pb, if you dont you will see some Turkish letters lol :D

    Yeah I just want to reiterate that these drivers look the total shiznik on my monitor... NCP isn't working, but I use Nvidia Inspector anyway.

    And the best part? No more scaling - yippee!! :thumbup:

    I love them.

    seems alot of people are having issues with the control panel...

    are you all using Nvidia-Inspector and made changes in the driver tweaks section?
    im thinkin its screwin up the control panel..coz i dont use tweaks and never had a problem with the nvcontrol panel crashing..on any driver version

    one thing i have noticed with the last few drivers..including this one..
    the scaling page nolonger lets me scale..only resize..it thinks my monitor is a HDTV so doesnt allow the scaling.. but that isnt a problem as the monitor has built in scaling that has better quality than nvidias hardware scaling

    For you guys with bad performance in BC2/MOHMP with youre GTX460´s, there is a temp solution for it. If you enable dx9 instead of dx11, performance is perfect. Goes never under 60fps (vsync) for me. Only drawback is that AA does not work with dx9 (strange as even xbox360 version has AA in it), but this is just until Nvidia/Dice fix the performance for us? Once more, good performance comes always before AA (IQ in general, but personally I dont see much of a difference between the two actually). So if you guys are like me and want the game to run nicely, this is the way to do it. If you dont know how to, let me know. And once more, this is just until they fix the dx11 problems.

    Edit: For you guys who run higher resolutions, you dont really need AA, the game looks fantastic anyway.

    Image quality is superb on this version. Don't know if it is a fluke or what but my text is clearer, games are perfect, and all hi def 3D screensavers have a noticably sharper clarity. Haven't checked performance but for me if I don't notice any change, a few fps either way really doesn't matter at all in real life. From what I have read on this forum I am not the only one seeing the better IQ. I notified nvidia of my findings and told them once they get "ALL" the bugs worked out for the final whql version, please do not change anything with the IQ improvement.

    Might explain why everything looks sharper.

    Lousy scaling has plagued nvidia drivers since last year, it's a very well known issue.

    Makes text and in-game HUD look fuzzy and well just shlt. Maybe it's finally been fixed...

    And yeah the Nv Control Panel crashing isn't caused by Inspector...

    Nvidia control panel works but 75% of the options are missing,no SLI or PhysX options ,all monitoring programs off and no tweaks when installed .Tried 3 times (once with driver sweeper) all same result .To bad these seem nice but just not ready yet i guess .
