    I hope they fixed the gtx 295 crashing issue present on the 182.05. I'll post here once I've tested these.

    Source games like L4D and TF2 seem to be running a lot better for me, also the L4D multicore stuttering is now gone so these be keepers for me for the time being. ^^

    What are the difference between this and the 182.05 beta? I will try this later today when I get home from work, dam this came out so fast after the beta ones.
