    Fresh install of Win 7 64 bit on an Intel X25G2 160 gig SSD yesterday. Used the nVidia 190.38 64 bit drivers. Installed COD-WaW game w/ all patches.

    When we tried to play the game, the screen was 20-30% filled with graphical artifacts and running slowly. Any particular drivers better than those?

    Thx...

    I didn't experience any problems to speak of with those drivers, but i updated to 190.62 and it's run flawlessly for a long time, i'm always hesitant to upgrade from stable drivers, but i can honestly say i've had no problems with the 190.62 one....yep ( vista 64 bit here)

    Yup. The 191.07s are nice on Win 7 64 bit.

    Artifacts cover 20-39% of screen as I move around. I actually re-installed Win7-64, and now about to re-install both COD games, etc...just installed the 191.07's...

    Maybe it's your card then, rired48. Artifacts are already very, very rarely caused by drivers but after a new OS installation and different drivers it's almost guaranteed to be your card.
