    Look at all those people saying it's functional while custom resolutions have been broken for years. Not to mention the fact you cannot even get 23.976 Hz vertical refresh rate to work properly on an HDTV in Windows 7. :whip:

    Hmm they are keeping the same old interface which was used in the period of windows xp till now, thats bad, they dont need to remove the existing interface, but they can add a new refreshed interface along with the old interface side by side to choose with. But these are only our ideas and thoughts :D Actually Nvidia should have plans for that, else its of no use...

    Yep. But i mean small tweaks.

    ie, the 3D settings, even a 17' monitor is enough to display all the settings but the thing forces you to scroll down for no reason.

    It has a lot of blank spaces that could get rid of, so the interface its smaller and has more space to put things rather than void.

    The ability to store different presets for global settings and switching them from a task bar icon or something like that. I'd like that.

    Nvidia needs to change there overclocking performance profile section big time. It takes forever to get working right and is confusing and frustrating to use. It literally takes me a dozen times with reboots to get it to work right...

    I like the current control panel; it's fast and easy to use and no Nvidia should'nt change current control panel.

    But I want them to add an option for to change language. I can't understand the terrible translation of Nvidia Control Panel to my mother language. Because of this I'm using my OS in English.

    PS: Sorry for my poor English.

    I think they should change it to look something inline with Nvidia Inspector

    I just want a list box rather then a drop down box for the game profiles and the ability to check boxes next to each game you have. Sorting by this instead of the installed games check box would be much easier.

    If Nvidia were smart they would have a custom benchmark within the driver and transmit settings and configs for analysis but that's a hell of a lot more work.

    I think its fine as it is, works perfectly, and is fast.

    I would never use OC from either CCC or NvCPL, afterburner does it much better anyways.

    I'd be happy if it would properly detect application/game executables upon installation. It misses the vast majority. Especially steam games or those that have the game exe buried a couple of folders deep.

    Nice opportunity to speak, if they hear us :)

    Like many others in this topic, what i dont understand and think it shouldn't be hard to improve, is the obligation of scrolling ... serious.

    Otherwise it is ok imo

    looks good to me, i would like more features in it though like some people said earlier. combine inspector ntune OC into NvCpl.

    Afterburner is an MSI application correct? I do not want MSI logo's all over the place when I use an Asus video card. I'm pickey that way. The reason why I use the Nvidia OC feature is because it is intergrated into the driver and would therefore use less overhead, at least this is my train of thought..but the problem is getting the stupid thing to work is like pulling teeth!!

    I solved that issue by finding a nice stable OC of about 10% and flashed my cards. I detest using software overclocking. Too me, its the same as overclocking the CPU in Windows. Excess crap running. I realize that isn't an option that is useful or because of warranty issues, doable for others.

    I can list many apps I like whose interface I'd like to change. However way its changed though, there will always be those who prefer it another way.

    +1

    It seems to pick up some game fine, but not others, even if i had to point it to the Steam directory would be better than having to add every game manually, wish can take a while if you have alot of Steam games.

    I would rather see that sorted, as well as a few HTPC issues sorted, before they change the GUI, i see no need to make it look better just for the sake of it, as if those were fixed i would never have to go into the CP, so i wouldn't see it anyway.
