    Small improvements across all titles, no issues or performance drops versus current official drivers.

    Good drivers!

    No more "VGA output centered image" selecting a non-native resolution!

    In 260.xx / 266.xx - maybe was an error - was possibile to center a 1024x768 frame with black "pillars&bands" for the VGA ouput (and not only with DVI)!

    are you sure ? dvi has no audio output. you need a card with hdmi output to get audio on your tv.

    DVI won't output sound, only video. So it's normal that you won't get any sound.

    DVI can output sound with a DVI-to-HDMI connector!

    With my GTX 260 I use "yellow" DVI port!

    That's BS.

    Dvi ONLY transferes video information, and has no decoder for audio what so ever.. lige S-video, u have to have a seperate kable that handles the Audio if you use a a DVI-hdmi converter.

    Only gfx, with integrated HDMI slots can send bouth sound and video from the HDMI.

    No problem here, i have Audio with HDMI.

    Yes you are totally right, you can only have audio with HDMI to HDMI, and
    not DVI to HDMI, and also not HDMI to DVI.

    In the 200 series You have to connect a cable to some pins in the Graphics card and then connect the other end to the spdif pin headers on your mainboard. That's the only way to get sound using the DVI to HDMI adapter.

    Oh, I just looked it up, you are correct:


    Wikipedia: Digital Visual Interface

    Compatibility with DVI

    But only if you connect the MB on board Spdif and the GFX Card on board SPdif.

    Maybe this will help:

    Found it on another website.

    Yeah.

    Don't buy Samsung again. Ever.

    Don't worry. It's not like you'll be able to see the difference.

    I heard 266.77 has issues with WoW so bad that even Blizz said not to use em.

    I've been staying away from any driver updates because of that, and I use a Geforce built by EVGA.

    Any WoWers confirm it's stable?

    That's a valid point, there really can't be many.

    If your hooking up the SPDIF of your sound card to your GPU, to output to a screen or a TV, then there are likely easier, or better quality ways of doing it, if not both.

    Of course if its proper HDMI audio like on the GTX460/GTX500 then its a different story, but for anything older, it just seems like people are doing it for the sake of it.

    On topic, tried these and i can't say i like them, and i usually have no issues with drivers.
    Got the first blue screen in a game in over a year, and last time it was my fault with a silly overclock.
