    Great driver !!! GTA 4 , textures do look a little sharper ( performance pretty good as with 185.20 ( settings 1440x900 all maxed, view distance 25) ) , but COD 4 is WOOW ... much sharper and better looking textures and light/shadow effects ( tested multiplayer only. performance great as with 185.20 ).
    CoD 5, same improvement ( performance great as with 185.20 ).
    The Witcher EE , performance improvements in some areas, also looks noticeably sharper as do above mentioned games.

    They never released the 185 series, those are pre-alpha drivers that are in development and shouldn't have seen the light of day yet. Can't wait till the're ready tho.:nerd:

    First of all, the 185's are leaked.

    Second of all, they are not Beta.

    Third, they are Alpha drivers.

    Finally, we arent even supposed to have them. We are just lucky someone leaked them.


    Oh and whats the driver date on this set?

    Am I the only one getting a corruption error when you download the Vista 32bit drivers directly from Nvidia??

    I don't want the international version so I'm not going to use the ones hosted here... can anyone confirm this from Nvidia's US site?

    Get an account on photobucket or something. Then click the "insert image" icon. Its the icon that looks like a mountain and sun with a yellow background, 5th from the right. Then just link the image from photobucket or wherever.
