    They are newer
    175.16 = "DriverVer = 05/02/2008, 6.14.11.7516"

    175.63 = "DriverVer = 04/25/2008, 6.14.11.7563"

    This is nuts, I only installed the 175.63's a few hours ago...
    Gonna give these a shot though:nerd:

    Digital Vibrance still not working on 9800gx2 Vista64!!!


    And i have problems with COD4 with any 175.xx driver, anybody else having problems with COD4 and drivers stop working but it recovers itself in the middle of the game i guess it's problem with OpenGL games.
    Never had this problems with 174.xx.

    Every other game works perfectly better then 174.xx

    Dv working on Win Xp 32 with 9800 GX2.

    Performance is good in R6 vegas 2 (also fixed flashing textures) & DiRT, certainly not lost anything anyway. Thats all I tested so far.

    Nah, I don't think so, the drivers are sent to Microsoft for validation. Maybe they've had delays and therefore release betas in the meantime. Hopefully this isn't the driver that'll get WHQL, gets hard to choose between when there are drivers with higher build number out. Although, I've had problems with flashing textures in Crysis with the 175.51s and 175.63s. Don't remember if I had this with the 175.12 drivers and I've not yet tested these. I'll get back on that :)

    hmm annoying stuff that the 8800gts 512 aint supporting the same Purevideo tech as the 9800/9600 series do (even the lame 9600gso supports them....)
