    I see they implemented the new panel system with the ntune software. So far it needs work.

    Any words on Assassin's Creed with this driver? I mean, is there some gain in performance, IQ or both? Thanks.

    They are working great on my 9800gx2 - tested Grid & Mass Effect and gained a several fps in each over 175.19.

    Other users in this thread have stated that these drivers perform very well with many different cards also.

    I would say go for it, most likely they will become offical whql in a few days (if you are bothered about such things)

    The truth is never insulting. Those children talking about downloading using those stupid smilies are the real insult to a quality website like this and i hope you are going to do something about it in the future.

    :nerd::nerd:If you hate smilies so much then don't read posts containing them :nerd::nerd:
    correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think there are any rules regarding using smilies, they put it as an option for a reason you know.:3eyes:

    Oh, btw :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:

    I see one thing... now with the 177.79 drivers, the downclock works more sensitive... only open Internet Explorer and go to Perfomance 3D...

    In the 177.72 drivers not have this problem.. only go to Perfomance3D with games and in internet explorer go to low powered 3D...

    Any know this problem?
