    Of course it is compatible, i read is 10.1.
    Which is not, the 8 Series is DX10 architecture.

    apologies for talking about 169.21 drivers :)

    I concur - it's certainly not perfect but it's much much better. Just wish we'd had these drivers before I started playing (I'm near the end).

    I know I have an older card (7800GS 8xAGP) but after updating to these drivers I am plagued with the desktop crashing and a dialgue saying "Explorer.exe has stopped working" Used the Vista 32bit International version.

    Have gone back to 169.09 :(

    Nothing sucks like driverproblems :(

    Feels like they do the drivertesting on state of the art hardware, and forget about the older things. :(

    Can anybody confirm that AA is working in UT3? It isn't for me, it appears Nvidia have disabled it regardless of CP settings.

    I think you will need new hardware to support dx10.1, ever try playing crysis with 4xAA on? ;) Or will be the first time in history nvidia will have to produce drivers that can force off AA i guess. :)

    Can't select 4xAF with these, when selected it jumps to either 2x or 8x, anyone else get that, just doing some testing to see if the AF's not actually broken lol.

    yes that got me mad :3eyes:

    i thought they where whql, and not this stupid beta again! lol i think that they didn't whql them, because they had to pay for whql, and as they release so many drivers atm, they would throw away too much money if they whql every one of them.

    Lamers make a decent whql driver and not this half baked $hit

    Let me know if you get it to work :)

    I'm gonna try as soon as I get home from work.
    Did a uninstall and a complete removal of the drivers using driver cleaner in safe mode.
    Going to reboot into safe mode again, and install the drivers.

    Hoping this will work.
    Praying to god tbh.

    Anyone else, or am I missing something?
