    Brillient drivers!

    Only tested with Vantage atm, but my scores increased by 1000 with these!

    Previous: 83xx
    Now: 94xx (Cant remember the exact number, didnt save it...)

    Keepers for me!

    Rich_Guy - you always make me laugh when im trawling the forums and your 4 bit problem surfaces again!

    I doubt very much that its dodgy hardware, just bad technique for upgrading drivers...

    Best not to fix it tho, I love hearing about it!

    The 177.39 & phys-x drivers r great for me on vantage and crysis. I went from 12,550 on vantage to 19,000 and crysis was much smoother. I play Age of conan the most and any of the 177's including the 177.39 have major shadow issues. I have to turn shadows off all together when using them. I will try the 175.19's and report back. If you don't play AOC then the 177.39's are hot. If you do, check back and i'll let you know how these perform with 3-9800GTX's and vista 64.

    I'm not installing these over the 177.35 unless someone can confirm that the IQ is just as good. 177.35 my first modd inf driver and let me tell you the difference is so big its incredible! I couldnt believe how much better the 177.35 looked over the 175.16 whql. I had to reinstall the 175.16 to make sure my eyes werent playing tricks on me. With the 177.35 theirs so much more clear and richer colors its like theres 8xAF being applied but its not, and the edges seem like they have aa being applied, but again there not. All of this with the same fps as the 175.16whql Seriously ppl, try for yourself you cant deny how much better the 177 series over the 5 week old 175.16+. Shader optimizations they bark? Please.. This is a ploy for nvidia users not to use the best drivers they have for previous gen cards i think. Its all marketing, scandless Nvidia, they play dirty.

    Just finished 3 hours of 2142 in 1680X1050 full detail , 4xaa Enhanced , AF 16X , High Quality , SLI , VSync forced by RivaTuner and not one slowdown or stutter.

    All of my game profiles work as well , DV works (before SLI is enabled but holds its setting) , games like 2142 load FAST....no complaints except that my G94 cannot enable the PhysX effect , but it shouldn't be long now!!

    2 thumbs up and one snap in a circle!! :)

    Yeah no game profiles

    Loaded these 175.19s on 8800 GTS 640mb and no game profiles either. Is there an easy way to fix?


    Followed slickrics instructions:

    Use cmd / expand nvapps.xm_ nvapps.xml in the extracted 175.19 folder and copy the xml in the windows/system32 dir...
    also to run older opengl games like mohaa you need to write the profiles in the reg with nhancer and do a reboot.

    This gave me back my game profiles :)

    It hovers around 12.10 sometimes dipping to 12.08.... I'm no expert on voltages so I hope it's enough. I bought "quality" over quantity, I read really good reviews for this PSU....
