    Well,Wow what can I say.
    Ran Crysis Warhead benchmark,shadows were messed up but thats an easy fix I think.

    Performance to the max.
    17 FPS better then my last bench,now off to try to see if I can do something with the shadows.

    Get this 1920x1200 Enthusiast level Alvalanche
    Min=51.99
    AVG=77.45
    MAX=104.92
    [​IMG]

    EDIT:DX10 1920x1200 Avalanche level
    MIN=32.68
    AVG=62.81
    Max=93.38
    [​IMG]

    Outside Ice Level 1920x1200
    [​IMG]

    Ice Cave 1920x1200

    [EDIT]I downsized the images you posted, gerardfraser. Not everybody's using a high resolution like you. ;)[/EDIT]
    Thanks for the edit,I thought I had thumbnail on.

    No, you can just install the driver without the Cuda. ;)

    Yes, I would like to know what I can use Cuda with as well? With the Photoshop CS4 acceleration, do I need anything besides the new Driver & CUDA download? I read something about a CUDA "Plugin" or something. Anyone that can clear up what the CUDA part is going to do for me when it comes to gaming or general purpose stuff.

    man, what is up with all these drivers. I thought that after the 180.48 WHQL the nvidia team would be slowing down there driver releases. But we've got the 180.48, the 180.60 and the 180.70. I don't even know if which one I should pick. The 180.48 is what I'm using now. I'll just wait for the benches.

    The driver links were fine, the CUDA 2.1 Beta driver comes in two different flavors: XP/Vista 32-Bit and XP/Vista 64-Bit

    I edited my post to highlight that a bit more. ;)

    Here is my FC2 benchmark scoreĀ“s. I just tried both the .60 and .70 driver, and to me it seems the .60 driver is somewhat better atleast on FC2.

    180.60 cuda

    dx10

    * Average Framerate: 61,18
    * Max. Framerate: 82,61
    * Min. Framerate: 48,22

    dx9

    * Average Framerate: 53,44
    * Max. Framerate: 76,92
    * Min. Framerate: 41,75

    180.70

    dx10

    * Average Framerate: 56,38
    * Max. Framerate: 76,27
    * Min. Framerate: 45,76

    dx9

    * Average Framerate: 52,46
    * Max. Framerate: 74,71
    * Min. Framerate: 40,52

    Edit: These are great drivers for me, so Im definetly keeping the 180.60 drivers, thx to OP for telling us about em.
