    I get some strange artifacts in source mod "PVKII" with this set. something like flashing (white) parts on the screen every now and then.

    CS:S works fine though...

    I still have the epox 9npa+ultra board with an 8800gt video card. Does this file have the motherboard drivers in it too?

    These 185.xx drivers have to be the most problematic drivers I've encountered for a long, long time!

    Both 185.66 and 185.68, even DOX 185.68 has been horrible for me, lots of strange visual BUGs in all the games I play (Age of Conan, Lotro, BFMEII etc..)

    Haven't seen this much trouble with the nVIDIA drivers for a very long time! Even the 185.20 worked better than this?


    Have to say I'm disappointed :(

    BioShock and Tomb Raider: Underworld are still laggy on 9800 GTX+ with this drivers. 178.24 drivers are best for these games. nVidia must solve this issue.

    There is still this anisotropic filtering issue if i walk and look straight forward and watch the floor, in the distance or at certain angle it turns into trilinear filtering and the image becomes all washed out -floor textures, i saw this in Fear combat map Factory and Streets and maybe even on few other maps ( docks, office, HT seemed ok). I didnt test other games but this thing was also with 185.66 drivers... damn these 185 are great though i noticed a even smoother play compared to 182.
    back to 182.xx.

    Has anyone noticed a decrease in their 3dmark06 score? All my games seem to be running at higher frames, but my 3dmark06 score went down by about 250 points.

    My 3dmark06 went up by about 300 points more. That's comparing against the 182.50 drivers.
    Using XP 32 SP3 and hardware in my profile.

    Quick question, is there a modded vista 32bit driver for my 8400GS? Or it already supports the 8 series.

    Is it just me or are these drivers hot?
    My temps are up to 57-60. Just by playing a game for about 20 mins.
    It cools down quick , or maybe its my house temps.

    These drivers clearly does give me and alot people a performance boost, but they heat up my gpu temps, so i am going back to using the 185.50

    I noticed that GPU heats up more with these drivers too. I went to 90°C !!It's the first time i've seen it that hot.Fan at 45%.Normally it never goes over 75.
