    I just wanted to chime in and say that these are the best drivers I've installed in a long time, at least for the games I've tested so far. I usually update with every release so have had a lot to compare to on my setup.

    HAWX finally lost the stutter I was having, runs perfect in DX10, 19x12 4xAA now, where all previous drivers had a hitch every few seconds.

    Assassins Creed runs better than it ever has for me. I would get regular slowdowns running through the streets before, this driver has just about elminated it.

    Need for Speed Shift is perfectly smooth 19x12, 4xaa with a full 16 car field, never breaks from 60fps now. No driver before produced results this smooth on my setup.

    Left 4 Dead 2 runs great, with the only caveat being I have to select single card mode instead of the default SLI. The first L4D was the same way for me on previous drivers however.

    No crashing here in Dragon Rising like others have reported. As a matter of fact, no crashing at all so far.

    I'm guessing that quad-sli is particularly finicky when it comes to drivers, but so far this one is a keeper for me. Much more so than the 195.39 beta's.

    195.39 did not have the downclock for 2D for my GTX 285. This one does. It also seems to work well in games.

    ah, it worked. You would think they spent all that money in development that they wouldn't hire chimpanzees to do the main menu, eh?


    So far I haven't had any real issues with these drivers. The new Stalker game is showing my card may be hitting end of life.

    To people with Pro Evo Soccer 2010 or Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising: do one or both of these work fine for you with the 195.55 beta drivers? Did you do a clean install or an install over an existing driver?

    I'm just wondering if these games SHOULD be working fine on my PC but will only do so if I do a CLEAN install. I did an install over the 191.07 drivers and, although there were no mixed files evident in the control panel's System Information tab, both those games crashed during loading on my system.

    However, all the other games I tried worked fine as did forced AA, which takes some fiddling around with to get it working properly with the 191.xx drivers (NVIDIA acknowledge in the 195.55 release notes that it was a bug in the earlier drivers).

    Didn't find any issues with these drivers so far, even if I play on SLI.

    Open Windows Control Panel, click on Programs and Features. Select NVIDIA Drivers then uninstall. If you want to do a clean install of your PhysX software then uninstall those as well.
    Restart the PC in safe mode and run Driver Sweeper Select NVIDIA -Display and also NVIDIA -PhysX if you also uninstalled PhsyX. Click on the Clean button. When Driver Sweeper has finished reboot the PC normally and install the new driver.

    You can also run CCleaner before installing the new drivers as this sometimes picks up some registry junk that Driver Sweeper missed.

    uninstall reboot,
    wait until windows installs its orignal driver 1.1, now you might have to reboot again
    run ccleaner ( registry cleaner), go to system32 and look for leftovers usually there are 3 files left behind.. - nvapi.dll, -nvdecodemft.dll and -nvencodemft.dll, remove those 3 too and run ccleaner again.

    Now you can install trouble free,.. if i don't go trough this procedure then i get fuxed 3dmark test => DCom stopped responding..

    this is in win7.

    Hello friends, I solved the problem in Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising deleting files "hardware_settings_config.xml" and "hardware_settings_info.xml" in folder C:\Users\Your Name\Documents\My Games\OFDR\hardwaresettings..
    Test and Report...

    I've yet to have a single problem with these drivers, both before in Vista x64 and after in Windows 7 x64

    I've run many games, no problems, I even livestream and have no problems while doing that and gaming, I installed these drivers with a clean sweep in Vista 64, and also as my first driver install for Windows 7 x64

    I think those of you having problems are just not installing them correctly, then again I found the 190 and 191 series were entirely problematic for my computer as well so your mileage may vary
