    I know but tbh most of us are sick and tired of people complaining about the drivers using these ghetto setups. These drivers work perfect for the rest of us.

    The graphics of it is absolutely terrible

    Yea even Quake 1 looks better right.
    No seriously just because it's an older game that doesn't mean people don't play it.

    Oh I agree with you that the difference between 4xAA and 8xAA is much less than the one between 2xAA and 4xAA but, nevertheless, with such a powerful card with lots of memory I've tended to always use at least 8xAA and sometimes 16xAA in the majority of my games which means that I'm at risk of the bug crashing those games. The only game that has outright crashed though with the beta drivers was Just Cause 2 so I guess I've been lucky. Would be nice to know it has been fixed for good though.

    It shouldn't be necessary to use that though as the NVIDIA installer now includes an option for a Clean install. Personally I would use that option first and avoid using third-party tools like Driver Sweeper. The only time I use that software is when I'm changing from AMD to NVIDIA graphics cards or vice versa as it removes remnants left in the registry by the uninstallers.

    I've just read through the full PDF release notes and no mention is made of the AA bug being fixed. However, the release notes are an update to the last WHQL drivers released, 263.09 and 263.14, which did not have the AA bug so that might be why there's no mention of it at all. Hopefully, ManuelG on the GeForce.com forum will confirm whether the bug has been fixed in this release or not.

    Yea Crysis' graphics are probably the worst graphics to date.. /sarcasm

    I'm not "benchmarking" with Crysis. I actually play the game on a regular basis seeing as it's one of my favourite games. With older revisions of drivers there was this horrid micro-stuttering happening. These new drivers fix that and I'm happy about it because I can now play smoothly. Some people actually do play games for the sake of enjoyment you know.

    Anyways, I also need to test out BC2. I was always getting this annoyingly random glitch that sometimes when I loaded a new map, performance would become abysmal. It would drop from the average of 70-90 fps down to 15-25 and a restart would fix it.

    1) Your initial reply to his was TOTAL BS IGNORANCE so if you had nothing to say to help him you should have simply said NOTHING !

    2) You do not speak for anyone bar yourself here so do not say "US" in like your 2nd post towards him !

    If you are sick of peeps complaining about drivers then do not come here and read the threads because the purpose of this driver section is for peeps to give feedback be it GOOD or BAD !

    apparently yes.

    Good driver set for F1 2010, need to test the rest, like AA in Hot Pursuit and AA in Dead Space.

    Add "working driver", replace month with year and can with can't:


    so people can't stop whining that it has been a year since they got new working drivers.

    Try with a HDMI cable with a HDMI to DVI to your video card. It could be a vga related issue with the drivers.
