    Yeah I forgot that, so thx cybermancer.

    And if someone is a Inf Master, please up them somewhere and post links here. The original inf only covers quadro cards, so dont install if you got standard geforce cards and dont have the inf.

    These drivers are much more stable in Photoshop CS4 (GPU acceleration) when compared to 178.26. With 178.26, Photoshop often had issues initializing the graphics driver and kept turning off acceleration. With 178.46, I haven't seen this problem once.

    Thanks F_L_C, installed fine with your modded .inf on xp32 with 9800GX2.

    These seem to offer me the same performance in the only game i'm playin at the moment- BIA Hells Highway (once biahh.exe renamed to masseffect.exe to get sli working properly) as the 178.24 whqls i was using.

    IQ is definatley better thou - all the colours look so much richer and deeper.

    I'm gonna give the newly surfaced 180.47's a try but if they are no good i'll be back to these.
