    What monitor are you using? I still can't make my old 4:3 games from stretching (scaling is still a no-go).

    I hope the modified drivers come out soon I have yet to have a driver that did not exhibit stuttering issues in crysis wars since the 195's came out. I am still using 191.07's which are out dated by now. The last modified drivers did not have SLI enabled for win7 64bit, so its been months since I updated drivers. I also use EVGA precision for OC so I need that to work properly also.

    I fixed it , true sli for Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising

    Download this mod. NvApps.XML from 196.21 http://www33.zippyshare.com/v/34267913/file.html

    Copy / Paste the NvApps.XML in C:/Windows/system32 and in C:/ProgramData(hidden folder)/NVIDIA. (make sure you delete the NvApps.XML in both folders first before you paste it, if you don't do this it's possible you have trouble running some games in sli )

    OFDR= Average 80 FPS , MAX 110 FPS , MIN 70 FPS

    i don't know if it's the driver or the -memrestrict command that i've put into the commandline.txt before starting the game but GTA4 runs much better now. the lag is almost completely gone.

    What A Waste Of Time

    apart from Dirt 2 the scaling is still not working crysis is jumpy vegetation flickering basically if its not 191 or under the drivers are a load of poop the fact that they keep bringing out new drivers that still have the same problems seems pointless making older games buggy and pointless to play

    ATI drivers used to be so bad that well lets just say there drivers now are superior to nvidia's now

    So Nvidia Pull Ya Head Out Of That Dark Hole And Do Some Work That Us Need

    I need them badly. I'm losing LOTS of framerates.

    I'm rolling back to old drivers... I'll get these when BFBC2 beta comes out. They will be probably fixed by then.

    Man, it's nVidia fault. Unwinder nailed it down. Now wait for nVidia response. :D
