    No problems or crashes to report..
    All games work fine..

    But i like the 185 Drivers better because of Appearance..
    For some reason the Ambient Occlusion adds spactacular detail in my games...

    im going back to those..

    My System:
    Vista x64
    8800GTX

    Reporting here:

    Constant crashes in Fallout 3, just after reloading

    But the quality is better compared with the 185.20 one, very sharp image in desktop on a samsung 22"

    is a pity

    going back to 185


    Hope nvidia goes for a revision.

    These drivers cause UT3 to crash for me.
    Went back to 180.48_geforce_winvista_64bit_english_whql and UT3 is now fine again.

    181.20 are DEFINITELY bad for UT3 and Fallout 3 for most people it seems.
    Can't they release a decent driver for once?

    I also got problems with Fallout 3 crashing with these drivers. Reverted back to Beta 181 and its working fine now.

    I have not yet tested Crysis Warhead, Age of Conan and COD5. I'll post when I'll test these.

    I dont have warefare, But I take that back UT3 does crash. I was thinking about when I was on 185 drivers.

    I test all the unreal engine 3 games I had installed. Only UT3 and Rise of the Argonauts crashes out of the other unreal engine 3 games I have installed.

    Make sure you don't have Steam of Xfire open. These drivers don't downclock on desktop with those applications in the taskbar.

    @GenClaymore - Hmmm... I had a crash to the desktop while playing Unreal Tourney III with these new driver too. I put it down to the fact that I have 4X AA and supersampling forced in the control panel though but the game was always stable with the v180.84 beta drivers.

    Guess I'll have to check these drivers with Gears of War, BioShock and Mass Effect to see if they crash too...

    Slightly off-topic but the way to get around the 30 fps cap with v-sync on in Dead Space is to disable it ingame and force it via the control panel. If you check with FRAPS upon running the game again, you'll notice that the framerate is now capped at 60 fps. The game runs and feels much better as a result, particularly on my setup as it NEVER drops below 60 fps. :)
