    I know some of you guys are having issues with the 2xx.xx drivers, which do you find to be the best?

    I went back through them all from 197.45 - 257.21 doesn't seem like any don't hitch like a mutha in battlefield bad co II, in directx 11. C'mon Nvidia your drivers suck.

    Well, I don't have a 480, but I'm running the 198.01's leaked from Microsoft, as they seem to give the best performance with the least amount of problems. I'd run the new 2xx.xx drivers as I like what they've done with the PhysX/SLI page but I get random driver crashes/missing profiles/corrupt textures in Metro 2033 with them.

    EDIT: testing the new 258.19s, so far no noticeable corruption in Metro 2033, Profiles seem to currently work.

    i've benched 257.15/.21 and 258.19 and so far i get the best bench results with 257.15.

    as far as stability they all seem about the same, although i've heard there are issues with BFBC2 on the new 258.19's, but have not checked as of yet

    Im using the 257.21 and havn't had any problems so far. Might give the 258.19 later but usually when I find something that works i tend to stick with it for a good while.

    "Best" is subjective and will vary from system to system. :)

    I agree that nVidia 200 series drivers suck. They don't work worth a dang with my 480sc+.

    I have nothing to say against the 200 series, i can run all my games without issues...And the list is quite long; BFBC2, AC2, Burnout, SplitSecond, HawX, SniperGW, LFD2, CrysisWars, ShatteredHorizon and lots of bench...I'm about to try SCConviction and Singularity...

    I had more troubles with my previous 280's + latest drivers than right now...

    200 series drivers can't even save profiles and sometimes one or more combo boxes are empty. Poor programming and quality testing.
