    Just gave these a good run on TF2. On Lazytown, I would usually get bogged down pretty good, but these stopped a lot of the slowdown issues, so generally a good bump in FPS, maybe a good 5-6 or so.

    Keepers.

    Drivers are not to bad really. Played a little GTA IV didn't notice much of a difference compared to the 180.84's.

    No good for Lotro in DX10,still get flickering shadows.:bang:
    Back to 178.24 for me.

    Already submitted a bug report couple a weeks ago for Nvidia and was hoping this was fix in this release but no.

    yes i said i also tried it and it didn't enable any extra as it did on 180.84, if i enable it on these set i get 1extra extension, now on 181 its the same 174 when i enable it or not...

    as for dirvers they're the same as 180.84 maybe a bit faster, good so far stable in ut3, x3tc, dmc4.

    Thanks for that Aioras.. I have downloaded them and have come across no problems in any of the games I play, so they are keeps for me.

    I don't have GTA yet, which is why I wanted to know how well they went in that. Hopefully GTA will be arriving in the mail tomorrow.

    tested with the 180.84 beta and 181.00 beta on xp sp3 with 3dmark06 and theres no difference except the 181.00 are 2 whole points slower.

    tried a few games cod5, crysis wars, fallout3. all ran fine without any problems. i could even say i thought that fallout ran a bit smoother.

    Hell yeah. It's the best since 178.24. I am glad they fixed the issues which the game was having with any 180.xx driver. Now it's back to smooth FPS, but for some reason I do get some stuttering on heavy fights. Probably because I max everything on 1920x1200 resolution? So far, a nice driver to keep until whatever releases next.


    Anyway, I have a problem (the reason why I registered). I used driver sweeper for the first time (always did uninstalling through windows control panel before), and for some reason whatever driver I install now, the Nvidia control panel gets buggy. Sometimes it shows me full options, but sometimes pretty much everything is gone .. like I have no driver installed. Though, the driver does run perfect and it doesn't effect anything. It's just the control panel options which keep disappearing. What should I do?!
