    Hello. Do these drivers fix memory management problem with 8800 GTS 320 Mb ? I know that with the old drivers, after about 30 min, the game slower very much and I have to do "ALT+TAB".

    Yes, they should fix your problem regarding the memory issue on 8800GTS 320MB, at least they did it for me.

    vista32... these drivers seem fine... 3dmark06 bumped up about 100 points... definitely more stable than the 169.04s

    169.04 gave me lots of graphical errors and glowing textures, this set fixes all that and has better performance and IQ.

    169.04 is the best driver i see in vista but the issue with vsync and halo 2 vsync wont work and some games dont work with force vsync on.

    Exactly the same by me too. Confirmed. Especially at GRAW 2 a lot of errors. At Tiberium Wars I didnt notice any.

    I think these drivers are for the enthousiasts with the latest games installed in their computers.

    So, downgrade to 163.75 whql. Vista x86. I'm gonna listen you about more stability while is the only think I care. My Pc is still able to run my games perfect. I'll wait with patience 169.xx whql.

    Hi,
    Those 163.75 WHQL are ok, but not improving the game expérience.
    Playing only Crysis demo at the moment, the 169.04 beta are as good, under XP 32 the best at this moment, and those 169.04 for Vista 64 are working, but i loose way too much fps with this last OS.


    When under XP32 I tweaked with r_sunshaft=1 and 27fps average with full24" reso and AA16x...
    The goal is to keep reso and AA at max as for xp32, but under vista64 but then with veryhigh everywhere.
    'tried 163.75, 169.01 and 169.04 and it isn't playable :/ some 4fps :bash:

    Should I forget about specs used under XP when under vista at the moment ?

    For my 8800GTX 163.75 are pure crap. Stranglehold, no-go.
    Det 169.04b, best ever MuthaF***ing release. Super fast and stable too. DiRT plays like a charm 1680x1050 maxed out.
