    Very cool I hope the new drivers will increase performance with Final Fantasy XIV that MMO is a beast even with my current setup I will need a huge upgrade in order to run FF14 smoothly during raids and groups.

    hehe just noticed that, saw your post and got a little confused at first. I was going by the number of the date (ie, 10 - 6 = 4) lol such a "blonde" moment for me. Not long woke up and still a little drunk from last night lol. I changed my original post lol dont want to look too much like an idiot :p

    tbh i'm extremely happy with the July WHQL drivers, flawless for me and superb performance.

    not bothered by the wait as long as they improve rather than break. ;)

    Using 259.47 beta and BC2 multiplayer works perfectly for me. 1680x1050 maxed settings, 4xaa, 8xaf, getting 150fp avg. Mostly use Vsync though as tearing is quite bad and my fps stays at 60. Really do not know why people are having so many issues with this game? Is it only on SLI setups?

    So, 258.96 WHQL on 17.07.2010, and 260.xx on 17.09.2010. Two months between WHQL drivers release... nVidia getting worse than AMD-ATI in that aspect :/ But i will wait, like eweryone, we only have to wait... ONLY :p

    Yes but not all of those AMD WHQL drivers have ground breaking improvements either. They tweak little by little. Nvidia usually FIXES things without breaking other things like AMD.

    Kinda like the month or two where I was without profiles, or completely screwing up fan speeds, or "oops, the multisampling setting actually enables super sampling"

    So, that's completely not true.

    You must be forgetting when nVidia's released a driver that broke overclocking....

    I've used all the Nvidia driver releases from when the GTX 480 was launched, and never ran into that.

    Plus I said USUALLY...I know they arent 100%, nothing ever will be when it comes to machinery and tech.

    Okay man, inclusion of the word "usually" allows you to get away with the implication that Nvidia doesn't break their drivers often.
