    Yeah, there really is. It seems like things are managed in memory differently.

    Smoothest ---> Smooth ---> Less Smooth
    Tesla ---------> GeForce ---> Quadro

    I did some reading up on the Tesla's and after doing so I think the Tesla's cards are supposed to have twice the onboard physical memory so the Tesla drivers are programmed with that consideration in mind and somehow this translates to smoother performance for a GeForce card.

    The Quadro's have that extra aliasing going on that the GeForce doesn't.
    The Tesla's have something extra with smoothness going on that GeForce doesn't.

    I'm still using them right now.

    Yeah. The thing that is really hard to do is switch from a Tesla driver to a Quadro driver cuz that makes the Quadro driver seem really unsmooth. Today a new Quadro driver came out too and I kinda half-way don't wanna try it for that reason.

    @ infinity

    yea first teslas aka 259.xx and 260.xx were a mess, but when they released 263.15 it changed everything.. It was the best driver for a looong time, i always end up returning to this 263.15beta.. No hickups and super smooth, especially in L4d2..

    These 270.61 are continuing this trend too and most importantly no bsod in Dirt2 - I mentioned it @ nvidia too, hopefully they'll get their acts together and be more aware of this..

    And they have a little better color reproduction too, more vivid colors, also texture filtering looks better then by GeForce drivers.. :)

    Anyone have a modified .inf for the Windows 7 x64 US English version?

    Thanks =).

    It's easy to make your own modified inf real quick. You can learn easy by watching TheHunter's youtube video he posted in the sticky at the top of the NVidia Drivers forum but basically you use Notepad to open the new inf file and an old inf file you know that works from before, place them side-by-side on your desktop, and you do some copy and paste of 2 different sections of the inf file, the 2 sections are called

    [nv_CplInstaller_addreg] and [Strings].

    The section called [nv_CplInstaller_addreg] has stuff that looks like

    [Manufacturer]
    %NVIDIA_A% = NVIDIA_SetA_Devices,NTamd64.6.0,NTamd64.6.1
    %NVIDIA_B% = NVIDIA_SetB_Devices,NTamd64.6.0

    [NVIDIA_SetB_Devices.NTamd64.6.0]
    %NVIDIA_DEV.0040.01% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0040
    %NVIDIA_DEV.0041.01% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0041
    %NVIDIA_DEV.0042.01% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0042

    .....etc.......

    and the section called [Strings] has stuff that looks like

    DiskID1 = "NVIDIA Windows Vista / Windows 7 (64 bit) Driver Library Installation Disk 1"
    NVIDIA = "NVIDIA"
    NVIDIA_A = "NVIDIA"
    NVIDIA_B = "NVIDIA "
    NVIDIA_DEV.0040.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra"
    NVIDIA_DEV.0041.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800"
    NVIDIA_DEV.0042.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 6800 LE"

    .....etc.....

    its international for both US and UK.. so yea pointless unless you need specific inf, and all gpus are in that inf i posted earlier :)


    edit: if you want to make your own, section 6.0 is for Vista; section 6.1 is for Win7.

    Yeah I noticed that right after downloading the driver set.

    Either way, now I know how to modify my own .inf(s) yay lol.

    Yes, for fps they are good. Great for my 580 so probably good for your 460 card too. I don't use vsync and tri buffer but people use those things to get a smoothness so I think you'll like using the Tesla driver with those settings.

    you were kidding the smoothness can be felt and in a few games i had some texture probs which seem to be gone. Fps is the same. keepers ;D

    oh yeah for my 460 its great as well plus considering there Tesla drivers anything Tesla related gets a great performance increase like heaven benchmark for me is off the charts than what i ever got before on a Quadro or Geforce

    i apologize if this is a little off topic and most of you may already know this but i do believe 60hz monitors are a bottleneck to some systems depending on the system you have sometimes it might be worth having a 120hz monitor but this all depends on your system specs if its worth having this
