    Yea I just got my 560ti and instantly installed the 320.49 driver. Crashes alot in bf3 and driver recovery instantly with any oc once in game. Im installing 314.22 right now. I havent had an nvidia card since 2009. I think last driver i used was one of the 189 drivers...

    This driver is terrible, just like the 326.19 Quadro whenever i install i get a black screen. This is one of the worst drivers ive used in years as the last time i got a black screen from an Nvidia driver was so long ago that it was probably just after the 3dfx days. Rolled back to 320.49 which aint perfect but it will do until Nvidia get there act together.

    Officially my worst driver ever along with the Quadro.

    They will most likely still release this driver as a WHQL

    So ManualG why are Nvidia messing up time and time again this year? Why are the 32x drivers causing so many issues?

    Sorry you are suffering issues. Everything is peachy on this end. No problems no temp or voltage increases, no crashing. You might want to check the rest of your system for stability issues.

    Can anyone check if there are any improvements in Metro Last Light with this driver?

    Thanks!

    don't doubt it, there's no problem with 32x drivers in their eyes. Magic computers, I want one of them.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. As a matter of fact, due to my job I test the drivers on several systems, the randomness in performance and stability is my main concern, in some systems 32x drivers seem to work ok but far more exhibit issues and bugs, almost most of them equipped with factory overclocked cards. Always test on up-to-date clean Windows installs, of course.

    nah, you're just lucky, the randomness of these drivers is insane, enjoy the fact you own the lucky combo of hardware/software that allows these drivers to perform reasonably well.

    I have a factory oc´ed card and these drivers are working perfectly.. Can´t really tell the difference between these and 326.01 tho!

    I've only tried a few games... Castle Crashers, all three X3 games and Smash Cars but no problems so far and no issues with Firefox v23.0 either, not that I have ever had any problems. The 326.01 drivers were pretty much perfect for me as well so I don't expect these to be any different.

    Weird though, how so many people are having problems with the the 32x.xx drivers; I would if it is because NVIDIA are trying to support too many different cards with different GPUs using unified drivers. Even AMD dropped support for older cards so maybe they should too or split the driver branches, one for older cards and another for the newer ones?

    Tried to install and what do you know black screen. However it's not what you think.

    I have a Yamakasi Catleap Q270 and when I have that connected I get black screen. When I coinnect my old monitor it works fine. These don't initialize my 1440p moinitor and according to some posts on other forums, I am not alone with this. Back to 320.49

    I think it's fair to report problems but...

    THIS IS A BETA DRIVER

    So if there are bugs you can not complain.
    Complain all you like about the latest official ones but saying "this driver is crap, Nvidia are making loads of crappy drivers now" is ridiculous because so far all the crashing drivers apart from 1 have been beta.

    Dealing with bugs is a risk you take with beta drivers. If you can't cope with this then simply stick to official drivers (apart from the last 1 it seems, yet that works fine here).

    I dont know are you following every driver release discussion here, but I think not since you comment like this, anyway pretty much all the driver BETA releases end up being WHQL. Which is nothing more then a Windows digital certification, with that said, the ones who experience problems now, will so in a WHQL version as well.

    I agree with this ce-lin dude here, the performance is so random its just insane.

    I for one had black screen on 326.01 right after the installation, and had to hard reset the PC.

    With these everything was fine until ''bad commands blablabla hang out due to this and that on GTX Titan'', reversed back to 314.22 and everything is fine. I've got the same thing going on with 320.18 ones, so there's definetly something fishy going on.

    And I will repeat myself again, its not about unstable OC or something, with 314.22 I have no problems whatsoever, but im starting to wonder what the hell are they doing there.
