    Ambient Occlusion - Off
    FXAA - Always Off
    Gamma Correction - Off, On for some games
    AF - Auto, x16 for some games
    AA - Auto, x4-xq8 for some games
    AA Transparency - Multisampling
    Pre-Renderd - Application Controlled
    Multi-Display / Mixed - GPU - Single Display
    Power Management - Performance
    T/F Negative LOD - Allow, Clamp for some games
    T/F Quality - High Quality
    Thread Opti - On
    Triple Buffering - On
    Vertical Sync - Adaptive

    Not using anything like EVGA Precision, using G19UPnPNetSpeed has lower resource usage than any monitoring app I tried in the past.

    I use NvInspector to set the AA flag and AA behavior for some games.

    In games I max everything out too, but often reducing shadows and other things that don't look any natural, like when shadows are cast in light source directions or cover more than they actually would.

    Grid Sparse, never got it to work without hitting fps to hard.

    Why for some game ? how do i know when i need it for best quality ? Skyrim, Batman, new counter strike or whatever.

    T/F Negative LOD - Allow, Clamp for some games
    How do i know when to use Allow ? If game doesn't have Antisotropic Filtering then i use it in NV CP x16. and sometimes like in diablo they say to use x16, and so on The witcher which improves graphics alot.

    Vertical Sync - Adaptive
    Don't you have slow mouse and slow loading in games ? Like everytimes if you use Vsync in GTA IV and Ghost Recon future soldier, the games would load so slow and the mouse was so slow like it has delay and it's just low on speed.

    I use NvInspector to set the AA flag and AA behavior for some games.
    Where can i find which AA Flag + AA behavior is the best for each game, cause testing is not an option, there are so many options.

    Gamma correction is pretty visible, if has no or negative effect it's best turned of since it drags down fps somewhat.

    The game profiles will override for games where clamp is specified, if things
    get to sharp or textures tend to flicker just turn it on.

    Adaptive V-Sync works pretty well with my 120Hz, no slow loading or mouse lag here, probably because not many games will go beyond 120fps with everything maxed out anyway.

    Regarding AA flag, check the list someone posted here on Guru3D .. http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=357956
    Also, forcing AA either works or it doesn't without a flag, so when it doesn't work you check forums and lists like the linked one for the best setting, unless you want to find the best setting yourself that is.

    Does it improve visual graphics, better Quality ? or it just doesn't worth at all the performance loss?

    Think I'm going back to 296.10 on my 580. I haven;t been happy with any of the post 300 series drivers I've noticed text has a SLIGHT blur in some of my games. This is with FXAA off.

    That and the 296.10 just seem... more responsive? I know, I should make a transition over to the 300 series, but my 580 just prefers the 2xx :) anyone else still using the pre-300 drivers/

    Anyone get slight AO flickering with Quality AO and L4D2 with these?
    (Or is it supposed to do that ? Is that the nature of Driver AO?)


    For the longest time I had pretty bad Flickering with AO (like 270. Series of drivers and beyond)
    Flickering doesn't seem that bad with these.(First time i've tried AO in forever)

    Depends, I just quote something from an article here instead of trying to explain it myself.

    Isn't this only for open GL programs? That's what my nvidia control panel tells me anyway.

    I had all kinds of problems with this driver on Win 8. I know some previous posters said it works fine but I was getting constant driver crashes and even failed boots. It seems fine on Win 7 though.

    Can anyone confirm if these drivers still have the 1000mhz limit for 500series cards ?? 301.42 - 304.79 all do. 296.10s and prior don't have the limit.

    Eg in afterburner overclocking past 1000mhz reverts back to 1000mhz straight away , its driver based.

    The Textures do not flicker for me with this driver. But Performance is lower than 304.48.
