Please tell me which is the best driver for my card?
First u have to make a choice: Detonator 2.xx or any 3.xx-12.00 Det.<br>
From the former i'd say 2.40.<br>
From the later <b>definately</b> 6.50.<br>
Between the two:<br>
2.40 is faster in D3D then 6.50 <b>but</b> has many compatibility problems with games.<br>
At default settings D3D quality is better for 2.40, to fix it set lodBias at -0.5 (fffffffc) with RivaTuner or manually.<br>
6.50 is faster in OpenGL.<br>
I Use 6.50 with the tweaked Lod. The speed difference versus 2.40 in D3D is small (~5%), i constantly try new games so i love 6.50. <br>
My 2 cents on the new Dets from nvidia (God knows when they will appear <IMG SRC="smileys/smile.gif"> <br>
Skip the first official, they are heavy Gf3 optimized. Try the second or even better the third release that's probably when otimize something for TNT to. <br>
If there weren't for lod bias under OpenGl i woulndn't even bother to dl em, i like 6.50 very much.
i've found the 11.xx series to work real good on my tnt2 at work<br>
