    The only thing PR has in common with BF2 is that it uses the BF2 engine.

    Every other aspect of PR - Game Play, Graphics, Maps, Physics Engine, Textures etc have been upgraded to be as realistic as possible. Much more team orientated and mature players. There is no ranking system and the PR players all take it VERY seriously. ;)

    It's the most popular BF2 mod AFAIK.

    Actually there is about to be a new PR patch released.

    You should check it out on youtube

    Don't use google? It would take you .000043c=2184 seconds to find your answer there.

    Hey I just tried the UT3 PhysX maps, and WHOA!!!
    earlier these were unplayable with PhysX enabled on my Ultra. Now!!! there almost as fast as without PhysX. the FPS increase on these maps are incredible.

    PhysX rocks for me thanks to these drivers!!!!

    BTW are there any good games that support PhysX other than UT3??

    well i had no interest in it since my card was a 7950gx2 then got a 4850. It was only when the 4850 broke on the spur I bought the gtx 260 - phys-x didn't even come into the equation I was simply impressed by the good FPS of the 260 and fact it seems a hell of a lot more stable than the current 4800 offerings :)

    Bleh, these don't maintain 3d clocks in PCSX2 (PS2 emulator) like the rest of the 180.xx series. After about 10 seconds of starting a game the clocks drop back to 2d and the fps plummet. =( Is there anyway to get an app to force 3d clocks? Otherwise it's back to 178.24 for me.

    Farcry 2

    * Average Framerate: 25.66
    * Max. Framerate: 43.88
    * Min. Framerate: 18.92

    Everything high with AA set to 8

    1680*1050 but mininum framerate should be something like 22 because i was doing something so it had 0,2 fps:p

    AA set to 4 and changed a sli setting in nvidia panel:

    * Average Framerate: 35.05
    * Max. Framerate: 55.82
    * Min. Framerate: 25.34

    AA set to 4 but changed sli settings in nvidia panel

    * Average Framerate: 36.64
    * Max. Framerate: 60.39
    * Min. Framerate: 29.24

    AA set to 4 but changed sli setting again

    * Average Framerate: 35.04
    * Max. Framerate: 55.03
    * Min. Framerate: 26.01

    Not bad too be true it may be bottlenecked by my cpu because its running 2,67 ghz at the moment:banana:

    By the way i didnt install any patch for the game

    These drivers are great on Paper but I'm having some problems with them. I searched the thread and no one made reference to World of Warcraft, when I open the game with SLI enabled on my GTX260's the game is fine for about 10 seconds then my machine BSODs quoting either a Hardware Fault or the NVIDIA drivers.

    When I go back to the 178 drivers the game plays fine in SLI. I don't know what the issue is but I think its the change with the Multi-Monitor SLI stuff they have done. The earlier non-WHQL (Beta) 180's also did the same thing however the game lagged terribly under those drivers before the BSOD so I guess it's a step in the right direction....

    Anyone else play WoW that has the same issue? I'm running WoW in Windowed Mode at 2560x1600 with all the settings at highest except for the Dynamic Shadows, Vista x64, Twin GTX260's in SLI.

    Just wondering if anyone else has had problems with these drivers (180.48) with regards to instability. Had been using the 178.13 drivers before without any problems. After installing the new drivers, I keep getting crashes in 3dmark06 and sound-looping crashes in Left4Dead. Should i revert back to 178.13 or 178.24 drivers?

    I know what project reality is, i have even played it. Never liked it thou, I liked PoE2 and Operation Peacekeeper much more. In sweden we have a saying: smaken är som baken, delad. It means directly translated something like this: Taste is like our butt´s, split... Hope you understood. :)
