    Well post about your status with games...I installed 163.67 or whatever and they suck imo. 163.44 were a lot better. Might give these a go tonite.

    Make sure you read pg. 14 and 15 of the Release notes, before installling these (Windows Vista; Overclock limitations), if you plan to overclock with this driver.

    Jeez, and I just installed the 163.67's like three days ago.

    If only Driver Cleaner wouldn't take so long at cleaning in Safe Mode, it literally takes around 20 minutes before it finishes to clean "nVidia", and let's not even talk about the Cab Cleaner utility ...

    I never use those things, never have problems installing or uninstalling drivers. I don't trust any utilities such as this. For one thing, I am never sure what choices to take.

    It takes 20 minutes to clean drivers ???? I thought once that blue line at the bottom of the window filled it was done ?

    These drivers are godlike compared to 163.67

    I got 5fps more in MoH:AB, and source based games run smoother. Gonna try som 3dmark06 now!

    EDIT: 1,6% score increase in 06 :D

    how good are these? My 500/750 OC fully stabilized on the 163.67. Does the new version maintain the stable OC capabilities of the .67?
