    Metro is pretty much the same for me, maybe slighty better? Guess my SLI was working as intended.

    nothing shown in system info from nv control panel although the components are listed properly, control panel crashed once when first accessing the system info

    ram still showing 6gb here so doesnt seem to be the drivers

    Metro 2033 works better then 196.21 WHQL's. No more errors, faster loading of textures too.
    Only thing that bothers me is the PhysX Indicator that won't switch off -.-

    That's the same bug the 196.75 WHQL drivers had which also crashed for me once and then was fine thereafter. However, the Display tab was blank and only the Components displayed correctly. Turned out it doesn't like you overclocking because if you go back to default clock speeds then the Display tab shows properly.

    I keep 196.75WHQL because my temperature gpu is normal (idle 32ºC, full-load 45ºC) and this new version driver is as better as 196.75. my room is 15-16ºC. SPARKLE 9800gt is excellent because the fan advanced is much efficient! I'm very lucky! :D
