    Finally got this driver to install.Had the 169.25 for so long.Did'nt think l would ever be able to upgrade again.As it has been a pain in the old butt lately with incapatiability issues of these drivers when it came to my 8800 GTX.Increases are good 1000 in 3Dmark 2003 and ozone 3D fur benchmark 150 mark increase.

    Yeah about time that there was a major driver update on nVidias site. Worth the wait though as these are very nice.
    Only a small increase in 3DMark06 from my previous driver 169.44 but IQ seems improved.

    finally, stupid mofos i do hope i gave them something to think about, because yes that was absurd lol releasing geforce 9 only drivers, which where nothing but masked 8800gts in the first place, well except of 9600gt...

    Still no System Tray icon after god knows how many driver revisions for Vista users!!

    I've upgraded to Vista x64 from Vista 32bit to see if it would cure a problem I have and it didn't! I'm sure AA + Bloom is broke on my 7950GT PCI-E card as I've never got it working on HL2:Lost Coast or AA working in Crysis on ANY driver from 16x.xx to 17x.xx!!

    Performance is OK'ish 212fps in CSS Stress Test with default options, but with AA broke on all drivers I've tried (even under XP 32bit SP2) I'm not sure if my card is fubar?

    Nice driver for my WinXP.

    Good IQ, 300 points more in 3DMArk06 and no texturecorruption in older games like MOHA:Spearhead.
    Also Oblivon, COD4, Flatout 2 and Battlefield series runs smooth and look nice...

    Keepers for now!

    System tray icon? I got over not having one a long time ago. How can you get any more convenient than right-clicking anywhere on the desktop? Let's see, go down to the tray, find icon, rats, icon hidden, show hidden icons, click . . .

    I do. I haven't noticed any major performance improvements, nor any kind of decrease in image quality, but I haven't noticed any loss of performance either. If anything I might have gained perhaps a few extra frames here and there, but those types of tweaks are probably unnoticeable to our eyes, we would need synthetic benchmarks to see the mathematical differences, which during actual game play doesn't really make a tangible difference. But with all that said, that's with my system, I can't speak for others.

    This kills the hang I got when booting Vista where I got a black screen and my mouse cursor for likr 30 seconds which is really nice. Also the CP seems to be much faster and doesn't seem to hang (as much, lol) as it used to and all of my resolutions are back now.

    Keepers so far.
