    Anyone has idea how to get NVIDIA's attention big style? Because i'm totally sick of their ****ty drivers. And i only have 6600GT. I can only imagine how pissed are users with ultra expensive SLi setups that are just dead broken.

    Sorry to mention the OC "bug" again but I overclocked my cards in RivaTuner to 490/1300 (as I do with any driver set) - mem showed as 2.6ghz in nVidia panel. BUT, when I reboot, nVidia then shows 1.3ghz but RT shows 490/650!

    Also, anyone else noticed (although a minor point), but with these drivers my monitor goes off and on for a split second once the desktop in XP has loaded up - never done that with previous drivers. (I'm running SLi by the way).

    Anyhow, gone back to the 91.47s - never had a problem with those and they work really well for me. (But I did pick up all the new profiles using nHancer and they've been imported so I suppose that's one thing that's come out of these).

    What about to include some details instead of just using words ****, **** and *******? This set of drivers has more serious problems for sure, but most of you are discussing such an absurd bugs as frequency representation.

    Present state of forceware drivers is just reality. nvidia does not listen to our objections, threats. Refusing the drivers like little child won't change anything.

    The original purpose of this forum was to share our technical experiences, not the mental state. Bad moods aren't helping anyone, please, keep it to yourself.

    Something on topic: OC timings are reset after each restart for me. Turning of the "Use this setting only until...." is not working.

    84.21 to 93.71

    Keepers for me upgraded from 84.21

    I played all games at max settings and 4xAA with mulisampling enabled for about 1 hour and tested the GPU at stock settings. Might leave it there as this driver seems to be doing what my overclock did with old driver.

    BF2 Patch 1.4 playes smoother and looks better
    NFSMW Patch 1.3 playes smoother and looks better
    Far CRY Patch 1.4 playes smoother
    Rise and Fall playes smoother (Used to get a stutter)

    3Dmark05 benches slightly lower at stock settings 7604 (84.21 7789) but games are much better and hey gpu'S ARE FOR GAMING NOT BENCHING.

    Ya, it is official, nVidia now officially sucks in every way possible. Man, they went down hill fast over the past year. Who knows if ATI/AMD can improve.

    The stage seems set for a new and real innovative and quality focused graphics chip maker to jump in and blow away these has been tech companies. I hope someone new gives us better options soon.

    These drivers were not keepers for me.

    Image quality and performance was not as good as the 92.91

    Same BS as everyone else with the memory clock readings.

    Uninstalled those and went back to the 92.91. :rolleyes:

    Waste of time for me!

    i have no issues with these drivers, cp shows correct clock speed, tv-out works, etc..
    you all know how to get your voices heard by nvidia, right?
    discuss these issues with your individual board makers, like evga, xfx, etc. they can take it to nvidia. otherwise they will never know what you are complaining about, it's not like nvidia reads these forums, or provides support directly for their drivers.

    my bad i assumed the 6600 was at 900mhz native i dont ever remember the stock clocks and i have one in a system at home :D. so yes that is a bug same thing happened to me and my gtx's now if your considering ati they have great cards no doubt but if you moving over for better driver support you will have a rude awakening with the ati catalyst as well :paranoid:

    Stop blaming a a video driver when its the games fault and if you wanna fix it just hit rest to default controls.

    I know what DDR is ... but I never thought about this, couse every other forceware showed me 900 MHz ... it is the first time, that I see 1800! so no need for being sarcastic.
