    The Inquirer learned that NVIDIA plans to release the G80 driver for Windows Vista, DirectX10 enabled and fully functional, in mid December. NVIDIA is not giving away "review samples" of the driver, but internal sources say that the driver is very nice and works quite well. NVIDIA hasn't released a public Vista driver yet because the mainstream version of Vista is not due for release until January 30th, and NVIDIA wants time to work all the bugs out.

    Would be nice to even be able to install my 8800gtx in vista or even windows x64. But no drivers... cĀ“mon nvidia, you could atleast release a beta/rc version drivers for us who have vista os as dual boot!!? :( And even more important to me right now is x64 drivers.. If i worked at nvidia, i would be ashamed of the lack of decent drivers for the hardware!?
