    These drivers were good, until now.. My clocks have decided to drop. I have been running the machine without a reboot for 3 days.. have played GTA4, done some folding, L4D and surfed the web abit, but just now when playing abit of L4D, i noticed my FPS dropped a whole heap. I opened up Precision and have a look.

    The clocks are just stuck and reach a maximum of 400Mhz core while gaming, + memory, shader etc are all lower then normal.. I had to restart to fix the issue..

    Fall out 3 running fine here, saves work fine. Possibly lower performance in css especially via servers with 40+ ppl.

    24hrs, crash free rock solid.

    Back to crystal :D

    Does somebody know when true AA support for battlefield 2 and battlefield 2142 are available again? i still only get enhanced, im tired of this nvidia ,im using 177.41 , that was the last driver properly AA support for battlefield series. its annoying, im seriously considering an ati card now, i must use a 6 month old driver, too get my favorite game work with AA. Give all battlefield players properly AA support in your next driver.
    and i refuse too use nhancer for that, just so people now.

    Definitely not a keeper for me, I got texture corruption since 180.xx in Far Cry 2 ... XP SP3 though ... But seems nfs:undercover got several more fps .... Back to 17x ...

    Sorry i don't have Crysis Warhead, but it's made from the same engine so
    it almost must have the same FPS.

    Come on men you got a very slow computer, you must have a faster
    computer to see more speed.

    You got a Geforce 8400GT and i think a Intel pentium 2.9GHz, and sorry
    but that is not fast.

    I hope you did a nice clean-up before!

    If you didn't, give it a try...

    Went from 60FPS to 15FPS in Far Cry 2.

    Definitely not a keeper

    These were a no go for me, I keep getting driver failing when waking up from standby and then when I went to launch FO3 the driver would fail. In GTA IV the performance seemed to much lower.

    Welll very naise that OA , but i dont really see the big improvement.

    Oke in farcry2 and similar games it gief a "little" extra effect :)

    Also it should be working in World of Warcraft if i can believe laptopvideos
    but i tryed it and doesnt look different from "normal" WoW.

    And the IQ of 179.23 driver wddm1.1 haz alot beter preformance/IQ ratio :)

    Work fine here, can't see any frame rate improvements over 181 though and image quality, is - as always, exactly the same.

    No problems.

    So far so good. No problems. I did a Vantage test and the results are... Hmmm... At least it's a performance gain...
    With 180.84 Beta: P14361 | VGA - 11928 CPU - 37023
    With 185.20 Beta: P14593 | VGA - 12127 CPU - 37418

    Note: on both tests the PhysX was enabled ;)
