    They work terrible for my GTX 560 ti 448 on futuremark benchmarks. Like a futuremark gimp virus for my card.

    I am not convinced that is inherent to the driver; something is obviously not right.

    I did clean installs twice with this driver. In between I tried a different driver which worked fine for Futuremark 3d11 benchmark. Only have the problem with 301.24 beta driver.

    Ok...I guess I would just expect that more on an older card, even 4xx, as opposed to one for which many improvements and such are specifically touted in this release (5xx series). I had a black screen in BF3 with some 295 beta when I first got my 480 and swapping out to the latest WHQL fixed in that instance (and are the ones I'm still running as it stands today). I was potentially fairly lucky actually as those had just come out a day earlier.

    These drivers corrupted my drivers. Since I installed these my video card is not clocking properly and I'm unable to install physx. I get a corrupt data message during instalation.

    Not sure what the problem is.

    I have uninstalled my drivers, went into registry and cleared out NVIIDA files and I have ran the driver sweeper software. Never had a problem like this.

    All started when I installed this driver.

    hmm.. i guess u r not alone as this is a Beta.. a few users have experienced issues and maybe u can upload your error info @ the 301.24 Display Driver Feedback Thread.. probably its better to stick with the 296.1 WHQL for now

    edit: installed and working fine. FXAA makes text, well everything, on my old 1280x1024 LCD look smooth :)
