    yes i have if using flash player 10 it crashes constantly downgrading flash player 9 fixes it then again flash player 9 does't use gpu acceleration.

    wonder if its 258.49 causing it or any driver from 258 causing it.

    kindy freaked out atm lol that my gtx 285 going faulty.

    i found way to speed up progress.

    i play 2 youtube vids on 2 diferent tabs then switch back and forward constantly on flash player 9 it does't crash however on flashplayer 10 it crashes after few sec.

    You do realize that a Quadro is just a normal Geforce with a different bios in most cases, do you? The same thing like most Xeons, basically nothing more than maybe a special selection and a different name.
    If you don't like Quadro drivers, simply don't use them.

    Would i get same performance of a quadro card on CAD applications? or at least better than a gaming card with a gaming driver(geforce driver) if i'm doing CAD

    I do 3d on autocad and i'm also a gamer, that will be 2 birds in one stone if these quadro driver is better on a gaming card.

    There are Quadros that have more VRAM but at least if you use the corresponding Quadro firmware you should see the same performance as a Quadro would have.
    I don't do very extensive CAD modelling so I never had a performance problem with a normal Geforce. There's also an additional .exe that comes with the drivers which supposedly gives you some CAD-specific optimizations.

    I have been using this for a while. The bugs I have are minor enough, and it is the first 257+ driver to save profiles for me, so I am scared to uninstall them lol.
    I'll just wait for the next ones NVIDIA officially puts out to try.
