    Looking for one that is:

    -Able to use reforce.
    -Better than 67.02.
    -Works with LOTR battle for middle earth.

    One of the most important thing is working with reforce. I can't stand not being able to force a refresh rate and being stuck with 60hz in a game.

    If none of the 71.2x drivers can do all of thee above, then I'll just stick with 67.02. By the way, does 67.02 work with LOTR battle for middle earth, I just ordered the game, so I wanna be prepared.

    By the way I've made the post because I hear so many people using 71.2x, but I can't pin point which one of them is the best or meet all my needs.

    All of them work with BfME. But be forwarned. There is a major memory leak bug with the game. A lot of people are having severe issues which make the game unplayable. These problems are being addressed in the next patch, but for now, you may have issues with the game. And there is nothing wrong with your drivers...It's the game.

    IMHO, 67.03's work far better than any of the 7x.xx's. I didn't see a spot to vote for "NONE" so count this as a vote under that category.

    I'm currently on 71.81, but it doesn't work with reforce.

    71.20 is good eh? Whats the difference between all 5 of them?

    With LOTR, I'm refering to the issue with AA, the 71.2x drivers enable AA in LOTR? Same with 67.02/3?

    Thanks guys. I installed 71.20, and everything I wanted works. By the way, is there anything against 71.20 as in bugs, OCing problems, or game specific problems?

    The poll shows 71.24 is just as popular as 71.20, ATM it's 5 to 4.

    What does 71.24 have that 71.20 doesn't have or visa versa?

    GF 6600GT/ 6800GT went for RMA
    71.24 has Yellow water bug in HL2.
    Thats the only downside of that set.
    And thats why i am using 71.20. Nice set of drivers. any 6x.xx cant match 71.20 when it comes to performance and IQ is just as good.
