    He said for his 6800GT, not his motherboard drivers =oP

    I am using the 71.84 64bit drivers and they are running great. Granted I only play World of Warcraft, Guild Wars and a little HL2/CSS from time to time, but they all run flawless. As good or better than the 32bit 76.44's or whatever the hell else I was using before I went to XP64.

    My system is listed to the right there ----->

    Runs great. Only bug I have noticed so far is in exiting WoW, sometimes it hangs. Not a hard lock, but video wont let go so the system can return to the desktop. This doesn't happen everytime, just some of the time. /shrug

    I'm sure as soon as they throw some updates on windowsupdate for x64, or maybe just some final releases of drivers that it will be fixed. And my 3dmark scores went up by going to x64. Not by much but they did increase.

    maybe it hangs for another reason (driver problems, or anything).

    Foofie: Just use 76.71

    BTW you have too manually update them no installer files.

    I am using the official 71.84 for 3 days, and it's been crashing in the LOTR: The Battle for Middle-Earth.

    I'm downloading the 76.71 now, post results latter! ;)
