    My fullscreen video problem with MPC seems to be related to SLi on this system, when disabled it will fullscreen without any errors but as soon as it is enabled BSODs abound. Changing the video renderer did not help nor did a clean install of the drivers. I like the performance of the drivers, they will probably be quite good once bugs like this are ironed out.

    So far Unreal Tournament 3, Team Fortress 2, and Age of Conan all appear to run fine. I have occasional problems with players teleporting around, but it's very minor and only happens occasionally.

    SLI still works in Empire Total War, but the performance is much worse than it should be. Still getting strange artifacts at level-load time, and zooming out still produces the l;ow-res block figure effect.

    :beats Sega and The CA with a stick: Be less buggy! :(

    A new problem just cropped up. For some reason screen resolutions and monitor refresh rates above those supported for my monitor are showing up. Something about these drivers just seems off. I'm going to uninstall these and install 182.5.

    The latest drivers don't have separate options anymore. Only 'On' and 'Off'.

    'On' is in between 'medium' and 'high'. Performance is a lot better than high and the image quality is pretty close, but there have been optimizations put in place that might result in some artifacts when viewing at certain angles. There's also a distance limit to the effect, so it might look a little strange in some places such as Counter-Strike: Source's Orange maps if you really pay attention to the AO. Otherwise, if you're just playing the game regularly, it shouldn't be a problem.

    did anyone recognize freezes (after about an hour) in GTA4?
    Set the Graphics to 940/999 MB (green colour) but the game still freezes (with patch 3).

    I'm having a problem with this driver where sometimes the screen just goes black. Usually when opening something. The only way to fix it is to restart computer. Any ideas? Also, with the 182.50 I get the BSOD when Vista loads up. It says it's a driver issue.

    Thanks for the tip, I'm downloading those drivers now.

    Here is the link for anyone who wants it.

    Can anyone who has windows xp 32 bit and a gtx 260 comment on the image quality of these drivers? I have a feeling they're not on par with driver 182.50.

    Well, I noticed recently that my GTX280 isn't getting as hot as it used to with older drivers. Now I'm seeing the same thing with 182.50. I'm even having a hard crash with no BSOD while playing Crysis Wars. So now I need to reformat. I'm assuming these drivers aren't uninstalling correctly or are changing something. Either way I'm going to stay away from these 185s for a while. It's not the first time that I've ever had to format because of a Nvidia driver but usually it's chipset drivers.

    People are commenting on supposedly lowered IQ, I only ran two games and I didn't pay much attention to try to make a comparison but the quality seemed approximately the same. The games I ran were Prince of Persia (2008) and Mass Effect at 2048x1152. This is a bit off topic but I may as well say that Mass Effect is definitely CPU limited, it pushes my CPU to 100% on both cores.

    I have a GTX 285 and with these new drivers I am unable to use extended desktop AKA Dualview. Did they drop support for this? Or is it coming out in the stable release?

    But maybe its just me... Does anyone else have this issue? I'm using a DVI connection to my monitor and a DVI->HDMI to my 1080p plasma
