    Pre-big bang drivers promoting performance increases over 10%??? :approval:

    I hope Nvidia left some extra performance increases for the real deal... i.e. 180.xx

    Downloading now... <--- Am I allowed to say that? Some ppl might cry...

    Oh - I haven't used the banana emote (it's traditional right?)

    Oooohh downloading now ;D

    Hopefully they do give some performance increases for some of those games on older cards. That would make my mates very happy.

    Excellent, one last driver to test on my 8600GT before it gets replaced with the 9600GT tomorrow :) 177.89 was good for games but when it came to Folding @ Home they sucked. Hopefully 177.92 fixes that temp problem I have with running Folding @ Home GPU2 and I can complete some WU's.

    hope these do the same for me as the .83's, not bsoding my rig when hitting the exit/quit botton in cod4.
    some of the other have that habit, so will be coming back on this soon.

    Downloaded and installed:)

    Everything seems fine, SLI works, DV works, also in SLI mode. I'll be gone for some 30 minutes to try some gaming:)

    UT3 including PhysX works fine and so does FEAR Combat

    Installation question

    Does the "beta" file from nVidia direct link have both the 177.92 and the PhysX in it? If so, will it automatically upgrade both when I run it?

    Yes, I know... I am supposed to manually un-install each driver before trying to install a new one, but I have never had any problems. I just dont know if PhysX will correctly install a newer version of itself over the previois one.

    Advice is appreciated!

    Thanks....

    looking at your results they look like they perform worse then .89
