    Here's a glimmer of hope from NVIDIA on the features lacking from their Vista drivers and an aprox time frame to when they might be implemented.
    For the answers to the below go to the NVIDIA page it can be found here

    Well, at least the 'GPUs cannot be overclocked with nTune' , 'Brightness, contrast, and Gamma values remain the same after opening and closing the NVIDIA Control panel', and 'When trying to output TV Out over S-Video or HDTV component out, the color is black and white' are listed..
    They are the subject of my primary concern under Vista..
    Hope to see some bug-fixing progress soon :)

    Well i hope World of Warcraft isnt the only game they are going to pay attention to. There are many that need improved aka Guild Wars, FEAR, etc...

    Why would you do that? Currently Vista is worse than XP for both gaming and video playback.

    Vista just ain't worth running atm stick xp back on and just use that till its up to scratch with drivers.

    Cool, I actually submitted reports regarding these 3 issues :D


    * At the Windows Vista CTRL-ALT-DEL login screen or when applications that request User Access Control (UAC) there are brief flashes of corruption or flickering.

    * With Aero enabled, video playback in Windows Media Center video playback stutters in window mode. This does not occur with Aero disabled or in Fullscreen mode

    * Windows Vista Ultimate Extras "Texas Hold'Em" in-game flashes at the start of the game.

    I just did that today, and all I have to say is wow.
    XP is smoking fast compared to the Vista in its current state... what was I thinking using Vista for over a month?

    I don't see any mention of the dvi problems, black screens or drivers stop responding issues. :behead:

    Jesus I thought they would have a proper driver out by the end of Feb, but this driver due at the end of march looks flawed too.

    How long are we gonna have to wait??????

    As long as it takes....

    At leasts its not as bad as the win XP launch. Then we had to worry about everybody's kids hacking your PC. Now its drivers!

    well there is one solution... BUY AN ATI CARD, the drivers are perfect for vista (same performance some times even better).
    i had an nvidia card before, always trouble with drivers, now i have an ati card an it works perfect, finaly good drivers :)
