    razor, we are talking about the PDsetup.exe not the whole driver, idk what you mean :S, do they help gaming in any way with a "normal" card? (aka 9600 for example)

    Me too but AA & AF drop down don't work. But anyway, this driver is fast. Finally broke 8K in Vantage without OC.

    Testing these in Windows 7 and I'm getting 3 fps more in Far Cry 2 than I ever have on any Windows versions, also GTA IV seems to have got a few fps increase as well. Overall these drivers kick ass.

    I just finished benching with Vantage and I scored P4996. This is the first benchmark I've done on this system. My last benchmark was done with an Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 2GB DDR1 and a 9600GT with Forceware 180.70

    On my last system I got P5215 3DMarks with the 9600GT. With the 185.20 driver on my new system with the same 9600GT I scored P4996.

    Yes, it's there.

    Some profiles work and some don't. For example jedi academy profile is pretty much unusable.

    GTA IV Benchmark w/ Forceware 185.20

    Average FPS: 42.21
    Duration: 37.22 sec
    CPU Usage: 78%
    System memory usage: 59%
    Video memory usage: 97%

    Graphics Settings
    Video Mode: 1440 x 900 (60 Hz)
    Texture Quality: Medium
    Render Quality: High
    View Distance: 25
    Detail Distance: 37

    Hardware
    Microsoft® Windows Vista" Ultimate

    There is something messed up with the driver. It doesn't detect my monitor's native resolution which is 1440x900 and it defaulted to 1280x800. It was easily fixable but I had to make the adjustment in all my games.

    I think there is a bug in this driver. I can not see any profile in the drop down menu of cp, but I will use this driver ... coz I can play prince of persia with it.

    I re-ran Vantage after finding out that the driver didn't install the PhysX system software. I installed the standalone 8.11.18 and got a much better score. P5563 this time around. So looks like these are faster drivers after all :)

    anybody know of a better website where to get these new drivers? I haven't seen them pop up on guru3d yet and that website, I only get 15kbps download speed from there and constant freezes o_O. I usually get my max of 840kbps or 6.5mb

    Yeah, d/l speed is pretty slow right now. Seems like all Nvidia fans have woken up from their new years slumber.
