    Beta installer - Disclaimer
    This installer is in beta, so there might be bugs. I don't take any responsibility for what might happen to you or your computer by using it. You may wonder why I don't wait to release until it's stable. The answer is simple; I need your help to be able to make it stable. Since I'm no super mega corporation like NVIDIA I don't have the range of hardware to test on. So if you want to help me beta test, you're welcome to play the part for Guinea Pig!

    Best regards,

    Menion

    Hey Menion,

    Thanks for the drivers, downloading now :)

    I've noticed we practically have the same setup - gfx card, cpu, memory (well my gfx card is a BFG 7600GT heh)

    Just a question about the cpu overclock... did you get it up to 2500 just by increasing the CPU Frequency to 250?

    Cheers

    im sad your last 2 drivers worked great with no bugs at all but this one when i went to install said it couldnt find my device? interesting did you fix the agp thing yet that might be it.
    i hope it gets fixed soon. you do a hell of a job with this tweaking stuff. keep up the good work!!

    Menion knows about the problem... he is fixing it as everyone with agp is unable to install the drivers... so just wait a bit... a better version should be out soon enough

    What are these tweaks supposed to enhance on this ultra driver? I'm curious to the enhancements for the 7900 GTX's in SLI more so than anything which is what i'm currently testing on.

    Alright, installed them.

    My device couldn't be detected too, but it worked when first install nVidia drivers and then this one.

    Just a few things what might be fixed:
    - The resolution changed to 1200x960 or something like that, while Im running 1024x768, and this was just when I runned the installer, didn't even install anything
    - In earlier builds you could select where to install, now the only option is C:\Program Files

    Had no problem with the install :) . One thing though they set my driver control panel to 4AA and 8AF when they installed?? Not a real problem its easy to set back but something worth mentioning.

    I lost 4-6 fps though on my 2 cod2 custom demos versus your other sets 84.43,84.37 so ill be rolling back to one of them :)

    Keep up the good work

    The driver will sucessfully attemp to install (I stop it) if I have an Forceware driver already installed. Help would be nice.

    Yes, I know, the servers are extremely fast :D

    And for the people having problems with the deivce not found, install FIRST the official nVidia drivers, then install the FWU's (And skip cleaning file's).
