Avoid it I recommend avoiding the 71.81 drivers. Not only did they hose my windows installation (no matter which drivers I rolled back to and no matter how hard I cleaned, the drivers would not install) but they also caused my card to run hotter. When I OC'd to 401 in 2D (even though my 3D was at 400) it became very unstable (but did cool it down 10C). Unfortunately the Nvidia Sentinel warning came up every time I booted. It dropped the clock to 200. This is very gay and dangerous to your card. I had to completely re-install windows because of that messed up driver. Now I'm running 66.93 again. The only thing I hate about 66.93 drivers is I can't use the nview settings like mouse throwing. It causes the driver to lock up and I have to end it in the task manager, and it never saves the settings on reboot anyway. Also, when I resume my computer from standby and try to play BFV I get mad texture corruption. Oh well, I thought I would give Nvidia a shot again. I abandoned them years ago because they can't write drivers to save their lives. It amazes me all the problem people have with their drivers. I went ATI years ago and haven't had a problem using them, plus the desktop looks better.
