    I know it seems funny, (it even lists my card as a 8600 in Device Manager) but it works! :thumbup:

    I just have a real quick question. I downloaded these and looked at the .inf file, but it doesn't list the 8800gts or gtx as a compatible card. If I mod the .inf, is it safe to install these?

    Use the modded inf I just posted, it's safe.

    This post is mostly of 7 series people needing this 8 series driver.

    (Sure, I'll put Un-Leaded in my Diesal.), ROFLMAO !

    Lol... does it matter that it says 8600GTS... Everything is working great for me. No crashes and +200 fps on CS: SS with everything Max.

    Is the modded inf merely cosmetic?

    the question is, why does this driver "officially" support the 8600 series when it benefits the 8800s and 7 series cards too?

    it wouldnt hurt to try woudlnt it?

    anyway, maybe someone (not me) should make a survey as to the increase in performance this driver does per Geforce family (meh, but its too time consuing i doubt anyone would dare try)

    Well i just tried these again, this time from another location with a different moded inf and i scored higher on 3Dmark05, about 100 points higher, not the greatest increase, but an increase non the less.
    Tried them so far only on Vanguard, and they seems better than the previous drivers. So i guess that's why us 7000 series folks try them.

    has anyone else been having a problem with SLi and rivatuner? One card is 10 degrees hotter than the other. In this case, GPU1 is 67 and GPU2 is 57.
