    Dear all, just got me a Gainward 6800GT Golden Sample (400/1.1.) Which set of drivers work best with this particular card? Pretty perplexed after reading the threads of distortions and higher temperatures. Seems like 66.93, 66.97 and 71.20 are more decent. I also d/led the DNA 71.24 set. Can someone who owns the a/m card pls help.
    I am running an Athlon XP 3200 on an Abit AN7 with 1gb PC3200 ram. PSU is an Antec TP 480. Thanks.

    Hmm..on a 6800 I'd definately give the zer0point drivers and the formerly VXG, now just Xtreme G drivers a shot.

    The "official" beta 67.03's work really good for me. Have tried all the other drivers and this set seems to have the least amount of issues all around. IQ is good and performance is good as well.

    Danke mein herren. went over to nvidia's beta webby, but they do not have 67.03 for d/l, only build 67.66 which, according to the release notes, are a update over the previous 67 build. anyone can confirm this? till now i still runnin 66.93 and i find them.... vanilla, hope for something better for synthetic and real world benchies.

    While the 67.03's bench rather well, the 71.20's outdo them in game performance in my case. Not by much, but why not have the driver that gives you that extra 2-3 fps?

    No yellow water or high gpu temps either.

    Not to say the 67.03's are bad -- they're my #2 set.

    i have the golden sample too and i have problems with just about every driver, i have 67.03 wich is fine exept it causes problems with my dreamrender program, i have the dna one and its ok but makes farcry run like crap..why doesnt nvidia make a seperate set of drivers made specifically for certain chips ..i think its how they keep it backwards compatable that causes so many problems...i may never find a set i'm happy with

    Get the Xtreme 67.03 driver set from Valance.....they are honestly the BEST driver set for the 6800GT i have tried too many damd drivers ...if you look carefully at the quality with these drivers compared to the new set of drivers coming out....youll see that 67.03 is your best friend. they offer very smooth gameplay with great stability

    Not if you play Halo!! So far I have tried many new drivers but always find myself going back to 71.24; not only the highest benchmarks but the smoothest game play as well.

    I'm about it d/l and install the Xtreme 67.03, and I will post back my benches and game play(IQ/Proforance)
