    Ripped from the battlefield 2 demo.
    Non-WHQL. Includes installer. 24mb, i dont have teh compression powers of Hilbert but it's 7zipped at maxx.

    EA thinks there the man now, leaking nvidia's latest drivers and boycotting fileplanet.. Geez whats next, exlusive EA drivers, from EA's site only, which you have to pay for, and run only on EA certified alienware systems? hah.

    EDIT Hilbert - Okay hosted here on Guru3D.com now:

    http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=1092

    We repackaged these drivers towards a cool 15 MB (was 24-25).

    Your so stupid Garak, these drivers were included with BF2 because they fix a shadow issue with the game that only happens on Nvidia cards.


    These drivers have nothing to do with EA. Geezzz...

    edit: I didn't want to bump a 12 year old thread.

    I just want to formerly apologize to Garak, my comment was uncalled for. I honestly don't remember what came over me, it was completely out of character for me and I'm truly sorry.

    Very much the same performance FPS-wise as the 77.13, 76.44 drivers.....

    Far Cry
    77.30 = 70.39 fps
    77.13 = 70.37 fps
    76.44 = 70.20 fps

    Doom3
    77.30 = 56.5 fps
    77.13 = 56.5 fps
    76.44 = 56.5 fps

    HL2: Guru3D_demo5
    77.30 = 106.80 fps
    77.13 = 106.99 fps
    76.44 = 106.94 fps

    CS:S VST
    77.30 = 102.47 fps
    77.13 = 103.56 fps
    76.44 = 102.41 fps

    Geez i upload drivers for u and i get insulted. I actualy already knew that about the drivers being that I can indeed read.
    I don't see how it makes me stupid either way.

    the 77.30's is not much diff from 77.13

    sc3 and nfsu2 have just about the same improvements, doom3 looks a little better than bfore..

    so i guess its either or to keep these drivers

    ppl these drivers r available on tweaksrus.com so get it there untill guru3d posts it:)

    I snaffled 'em from Tweaks R Us this morning. I think the 77.13's are a tad faster (only a frame here and there) or it maybe it's just my imagination. Anyway, both these (the 77.30's) ard the 77.13's perform the best so far with my system.

    I think you should apologize, calling someone stupid is not very nice. :no:

    I'm running 77.13's now. Any real tangible difference between these drivers and the 77.13's? I'm noticing from the posts that these are slower in the benchmarks. Any effect on the 5-second pauses people were experiencing?

    I'd take comparable IQ without the stuttering over a few FPS at this point.

    Maverick-DBZ- dont be so insulting to a fellow guru member, after all he was good enough to upload them and make them available to other users who havnt downloaded the bf2 demo.

    forum boards across the internet are full of mean and degrading posts towards fellow members and its something we can do without on guru forums (and its aginst the rules & terms you agreed to abide by signing up for these forums).

    be nice after all i didnt see you saying or doing anything constructive on this item.

    Garak thanks for the heads up and for ripping them out of the demo.

    slightly off topic but ive just downloaded and installed the bf2 demo and the drivers and i have to say bf2 is looking sooo sweet. :D:

    Hey guys, k i downloaded this demo yest nite and i can't upgrade my drivers to the 77.30 version...i'll tell u why:
    My comp is a Dell XPS Gen2 with GeForce Go 6800 ultra and unfortunatly i can only get the nvidia drivers from dell's website(the drivers for the laptop version of graphic cards being different from tose you can get from nvidia's website)
    There's this friggin bug with the shadows in the game and i've no clue about how to fix it...Do you think i should try and manually install the 77.3 drivers which may result in crashinng the machine or GC maybe...??
    thx

    I have the same laptop Oni, I installed these drivers without any problems.
    I haven't had a chance to test anything yet. But, I just wanted to let you know it would work. Have a great weekend.
