    Hi guys, im trying to find a stable driver for my GTX 560, and ive tried the 301.42.. but experienced probs on both.. i get errors like 'Nvidia driver has stopped working and has recovered'.. and my card was just RMAd.. the older 306.xx drivers i used earlier, killed my card.. so now wat would be best, 306.97 or 310 Beta?

    I'm using the latest Beta Drivers for my two 570's and had no issues at all. Guildwars 2 crashed once, but that game is unstable...

    I dont know wats wrong but im having really bad performance, getting just 20-30 frames in Borderlands 2.. that too at a resolution of 1366x768.. with a highly OCd 560 which matches the 560 ti in performance.

    Last time I had this problem with my 580, a small bump in PCIe voltage on my mobo fixed it. It seems the more you put through the bus on some Intel setups, the more the PCIe voltage droops.
