    I havent noticed anything unusual either, and my cards clocked too.

    I've generally bee only really playing BF2142 & testing with Vantage, but havent noticed any artifacts.

    I quite like this driver personally

    I've played grid 1.1 tonight online with a couple of friends. No crash at all with this driver but I noticed a nice frame rate loss with 177.39 compared to 177.35. BTW this is with all set on High or Ultra when avaible at 1920x1200. With fraps on the loss of fps was of about ten.

    It's kind of weird, I tried these drivers, but the setup says that I would not have a compatible graphics card for these drivers?!

    I have a 9800 GX2 and if I read correctly, there are people who successfully tested it with the drivers.

    I tried in in Win XP, Vista I will try tomorrow.

    I have 177.35's installed (and PhysX 8.06.??) and they don't work. I've got a G92 card (8800GT) with laptopvideo2go.com modded inf, drivers installed just fine.

    Installed the Cell Factor Revolution demo and it doesn't recognize any physx hardware. I tried the 177.39's the other day and all it netted me was strange metallic noise in my speakers, like they "bled" garbage to my Soundblaster X-Fi Platinum. :S

    ps. using Vista x64.

    Cellfactor doesn't work on Geforce PhysX... only these games are supported...

    it's funny. when physx first come out no one rrally cared but now its on a nvidia gpu it like wow. physx been around ages... and people wait for real driver with real support to come out. i think 177.39 are crap compare to 175.70

    Cellfactor is indeed on that list :)

    Its not upto that list, its upto nvidia what they support, They wont Support every game at once, it will be little updates.

    Ok, I used the inf-file from a previous release, now it works. I didn't find the Physx-Settings-Tab, it seems like I did not have my physx-software on the PC anymore. So I installed the Aega-System-Software first, after that everything worked fine.

    The "geforce Physx" is highlighted and the Physx-Support in games seems to work (at least in UT3 which I tried, I can enable "hardware physics" there).

    I don't have time for further tests atm, will try more later.

    I'm very sure that GRID don't support any kind of PhysX acceleration.

    NVidia PhysX only works on UT3 PhysX custom mappack and 3DMark Vantage so far.
    Btw those 177.39 perform well here, nothing to complain about.

    I guess it's a case of "early days", nVidia just haven't finished working on the feature. I'll be waiting for updates in the coming weeks.

    This is very funny. With 175.16 I can enable PhysX driver see this
    http://www.geocities.com/s3bastian_bach2002/Test.JPG
    But with 177.39 my physX driver disabled :3eyes: see this
    http://www.geocities.com/s3bastian_bach2002/Test1.JPG

    But I notice that 177.39 is faster than 175.16. In crysis I only got 1 fps increase but with grid I gained about 8-10 fps in 1600x1200 Full setting 4X MSAA (Except shadow and particles. I have edited shadow res to 1024 instead of 2048 and edit particles max to 2000 instead of 6000). I tested in most demand parts of the game and I guess its Midnight Touge in MT Haruna. FPS ussualy averaging low 30 but with 177.39 its about 40:banana:

    I also noticed some glitches or artifact when using cloak with crysis. Sorry for my English :)

    How did you get PhysX enabled on 9600GT i cant enable it on mine

    your 9600gt BIOS is older then mine do u think that has something to do with it.
