    Okay, I'm going in!
    Will post results asap.
    ----------------------------
    EDIT:

    NV 76.45
    3DMark03: 10300
    3DMark05: 4200
    AquaMark03: 50700

    NV 77.30
    3DMark03: 10150
    3DMark05: 4100
    AquaMark03: 50300

    NV 77.72
    3DMark03: 10200
    3DMark05: 4050
    AquaMark03: 50275

    77.50 & 77.62 were buggy on my rig, so I didn't bench them.

    I noticed IQ is about the same as the other drivers mentioned, but I think I saw stutters during benchmarking. This needs some testing. So I'll sacrifice myself to some extensive game-playing for the sake of my fellow gurus!

    EDIT 2: I have to postpone that. I'm gonna skate in a sunny park this nice evening ;)

    Edit 3: gamma is too high at default to watch movies properly. Workaround fails at each reboot :(

    Back to 76.45..

    Just tested these in HL2, looks excellent, great IQ, temps increased a bit, not that i care, good smoothness, higher fps. No buggs which i have witnessed before. These here are Good 2 Go, i will be testing with BF2 when i buy it, but so far these are Definately keepers

    hmm these drivers are not WHQL certified and there seems to be no application profiles, even after installing coolbits, there were none in the 77.50 or 77.30 for that matter, can someone please confirm this?

    coolbits worked for me. But bf2 sucked, benchmark sucked, this driver sucked for me.

    These 77.72 are ok for my GeFoRcE 6600.
    Lock On works well and SH III also.
    ThxX Spike21 for the links ;)

    Did you use driver cleaner before installing them? I still use 77.50 (at least till i've heard more about these) & have always had app profiles. The only problem i've found is after changing an app profile the Global Driver settings change too so have to be changed back. Kind of annoying but isnt a huge deal...

    I use a 6800 Ultra and I don't see I'm missing any profiles(never use them, anyway).

    The "problem" I've noticed, is the colours when playing back video, is all wrong.
    But this was easily fixed in the driver control panel.

    I simply went under the "colour correction" menu. There I choose the "all" option(where you also can choose desktop and overlay) and clicked on the "reset to default" button.

    Disclaimer: I'm not using a english driver version, so the translation of some of the words used above, may not be totally accurate. I'm just guessing from the danish translation.

    Hi Guys,

    Just played on Far Cry at Volcano in final level, when I died that level and reload same level, when done loads and instant freeze on that level so I use crtl+alt+del back to desktop and close it, so roll back to WHQL 77.50 works fine with FARCRY.

    BTW, is really WHQL stamp this 77.72? I say this is b.s. :D

    Peace
