    Installed as expected, CP opens very quickly. I like the new installer too.

    Big FPS improvement in CS:S, picked up nearly 50 fps in that benchmark? BFBC2 runs much more smoothly, Very fluid game play now.

    Need to do more testing but don't see any issues yet.

    GG, nVidia.

    I love the clean install feature. Just installed and all seems ok so far. 60hz monitor setting, etc. Will check BC2 and a few others :D

    PhysX set to CPU by default. Great job, nvidia.

    CP crashed also one time. Seems to be a problem with finding installed games and showing their profiles, I guess. When I wait a little bit, the list works fine.

    I am too tired to play now. I will test this after some sleep. :sleep2: :sleep:
