    Damn DF-1, i give up on install after 2and a half minutes, nevermind hours.

    Just tested this will all my Cuda app's, no issues at all, and im guessing the new PhysX drivers are probably for Metro2033.

    Looks like PhysX drivers are smaller. And also some other setup are used for PhysX drivers...

    I had a gamma problem with 196.34 when using 1920x1080 which is gone now. Great work!

    Performance seems to be on a new level also. Batman:AA jumped up almost 10fps with the new Physx package, NFS:Shift looks great with AO and still works performance-wise (nailed at 60fps vsync).
    Definitely a great driver from what I've seen so far.

    Anyone else having issues downloading these? Seems Nvidia's getting hammered at the moment.

    Aliens vs. Predator with the latest patch seems to run a lot better now under DX10 mode with these new drivers albeit there is still some initially stuttering post-load. It seems to smooth itself out though but if you disable motion-blurring then the game seems to run better anyway so it seems to me that the stuttering issues are related to that. Shame the game is still a bit crap though...

    Just got these installed and normally the first thing I do is run a benchmark with Batman Arkham Asylum because it's a quick test for comparison and also uses my 8800 GTS for PhysX showing a nice real world result as opposed to 3DMark Vantage's non real world dedicated PPU numbers (shows lower overall score due to poor implementation). Well I scored my highest benchmark results ever though only by a couple frames, which is pretty significant in itself considering I run this test upon every driver install and never hit an increase like this. With previous drivers I always scored a low/high/average of 29/61/51 and now I'm hitting 32/62/54. While 3 fps might not seem like much it's actually quite significant because I always run v-sync and that 3 fps bump on the low end of the spectrum is a huge deal (at least for me especially when using one board as a dedicated PPU).
