    Just tested Fallout 3 and the crashing now seems to be gone. I'll have to check Mirror's Edge and GTA IV for any changes but these appear to be a much better set than 181.20.

    Two things...

    1) Is AO added on this release? No!
    2) Does this driver resolve the "Outdoor VATS" crash from 180.20 in FO3? Yes!!!

    Marginal improvement on FPS, but noticeable decrease in image quality on both FO3 and GTAIV (Vista 32Bit).

    what does this mean?:

    "The following are features that are not currently supported or have limited support in this driver release:


    • [*]NVIDIA SLI Antialiasing
      [*]NVIDIA Control Panel Display Category
      [*]The Graph tab on the Adjust Desktop Color Settings page is not available."
    does it mean that I can't adjust digital vibrance and contrast in NV control panel?

    nope, graph that is that one which shows a graph (lol xD) and you can move the line, which adjust colour saturation of each type of color, useless at most times xP.

    anyways rivatuner can adjust DV and contrast, but no need in this driver =)

    Mirror's Edge is running great with the 181.20set. I will give them a try later just to see if there's some improvement.

    I can confirm after 2 hrs gameplay that Fallout 3 crashing is gone. I have a feeling, that its going smoother (1920x1200, ultra, 4xAA, 8xAF, dx-forced triple buffering). Though I expirienced some minor graphical glitches and sometimes I got again massive fps drop in VATS (caused probably by AA).

    If anyone is wondering why their post(s) got deleted, they were deemed 'unnecessary' to the topic. This is to keep the thread a bit cleaner to help people looking for specific information as requested here.

    Idel your Geforce GTX 280 will clock down is normal, only when you play
    Games or do things with LightWave 3D, then your Clock will go up to normal
    speed.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LightWave_3D

    This is normal with this new drivers with a Geforce GTX 200 version.
