drivers. The single most frequently asked question would be this one. “What is the best driver for my videocard?” It technically is a driver board question, but often ends up in here. Its very easy to take all the drivers available up to date and simply go into a benchmark program and benchmark them all and see which one gives you the best score. But this isn’t the right way to select the best driver for your system. Benchmarks scores aren’t everything, 2d & 3d sharpness and many other things have to be taken into account, and the biggest ones would be Stability and compatibility. Many of the drivers that are leaked, are LEAKED. Meaning that they are not perfect. Even many times, many of the drivers that are NOT leaked, still have many bugs. Up till today, the newest (latest) bug-free drivers would be the Detonator 30.82’s. Also a very important point, if one driver doesn’t suit you, move on, get another one. Which also brings me to my second point, compatibility. Every system has its own favourite driver, I can benchmark all the drivers with my computer, but it would be useless to YOU as the same drivers that give ME the most benchmark points, may give you the least! Every system is different and every system reacts differently to drivers. The only real way of knowing which driver is best for you is to go and try them all out and see which suits your needs best. But for many, they simply don’t have the time, and there are other ways of finding drivers that are PROBABLY best suited for your system. Geforce 256 – everything below 15.xx (dets) Geforce 2 – everything from around 2x.xx to 30.xx (dets) Geforce 3 – from 2x.xx to 3x.xx (dets) Geforce 4 – from 3x.xx to latest ones. (dets) Geforce fx – probably around 3x.xx to latest ones. (dets) This basically points you in the direction where to look; but of course there are drivers that are specially known for their stability, lack of bugs, and ones that generally boost your benchmark score. These specific drivers may help you (and amaze you) in some areas, but in other areas completely disappoint you. MAIN IDEA: Every system has its own favorite driver, you’re simply going to have to try them out to find out which one suits your system best.
