    Some say it did not work. I haven't tested it in ME3 with this driver. For me, the old ME1&2 flag does not work in ME1 any more (and other flags cause some minor issues; ME3 flag worked but the performance was beyond horrible).

    Look at post #68 and #69 for examples of the Pink poke a dots "Note these are examples of it happening just browsing the web viewing folders etc. not gaming or stressing the card". These are 2 of 100's of posts all over the web, some are at the eVGA forums some at the ASUS forums and all the major nVidia card manufactures including nVidia's own forums. All had two things in common, they where using 560ti's/GTX 460's but there are several reports of other cards doing this as well. This only occurs in windows so hardware was ruled out, leaving only driver as the issue.

    After changing my drivers back to the 295.73's the issue was gone. It's been weeks now without errors. As stated before no other driver does this. Just the 300.xx series so far.

    Edit; 295.73 not 297.73

    That condition can also occur from a faulty DVI cable....

    Can't install the 64bit one, says something about a file missing. I've downloaded the drivers from 2 different places and the same thing occurs. Going back to whql.

    no patronizing at all, was playing with you by making it sound serious (in a sarcastic joking way) lol

    anyway sorry. :D

    yee, you're wrong for reason, vsync will cause lag if the framerate is low enough which is why adaptive vsync disables vsync when framerate falls below your monitor refresh, that's in order to improve your performance/smoothness.

    when framerate is high (60fps or close to your monitor refresh), vsync will be automatically enabled, that's because performance is high enough to sustain the vsync.

    hope it's clear now. ;)

    dunno, im in the same boat as you.
    alpha, beta, quadro, notebook driver... can't seem to crash this mofo no matter what :confused:

    I do like to read OMGOMG post and guess which ones are Edelman :)


    0x080100C5 is working fine from what I can see, but it's only MSAA, so it leaves plenty to be desired.
    why not just use 0x000000C1 and 4xMSAA + 4xSGSSAA - it's less hit then new 8xMSAA

    These new drivers have the same stuttering issues like the 301.10 drivers! Just play Assassin's Creed: Revelations and you can tell.

    So back to 300.83 for me.

    NVidia, fix your damn drivers!!

    Here are my two cents: What's with all the fuss surrounding FXAA/TXAA when we can have our awesome near universal applicable SGSSAA?

    I love FXAA. Hardly any performance hit and it looks pretty (to my eye).

    Don't go around blaming people's hardware when they experience issues with the new drivers and the older ones have always worked fine.

    Can someone comment on whether or not these have fixed video playback / madVR ? The 301.10 only showed a black screen.

    ^^^^that psu has 28amps on the 12v rail and on 336 watts on the 12v rail, if he upgraded fine, if not that may be a problem. only trying to help the guy unlike you

    I'm playing that game on maxed settiings, 8xMSAA, 1920x1200, v-synced and triple buffered and I haven't noticed any stuttering with the 301.10 or these new drivers. :3eyes:

    so it says in the nvcp that you can use fxaa with regular aa? any real benefit on this? I just did a heaven 3.0 run with and without and didnt notice any difference with 8xaa, just a small performance hit. fxaa by itself did not look so good but much less of a performance hit

    He complained of the same condition with the 301.10 drivers as he's complaining about with these drivers. Given his PSU doesn't produce enough amperage, it's likely that it's his problem. With 430watts and 28amps on the 12v rail, he's 10amps short of the recommendation of 550watt and 38amp....

    Check cpu use on all cores.
    If any core reaches around 90% it can cause stutters.

    sounds like a personal problem...installed just fine over the old drivers for me...as they always do.

    Sounds like you have a harddrive or motherboard failing....
