    Sweet downloading from NV right now! I've actually had good luck with the 186 beta's.

    Seems to be a slight improvement in performance. Nothing like the big leaps last fall and winter though. I don't know how much longer they can milk a percentage or two extra performance in popular games - but my 8800 GTX runs WAY better than it did compared to when I first built my PC a couple years ago.

    Now I can play Crysis: Warhead on max (1680x1050, 16aa, enthusiast) and it`s `lagging` sometimes :)

    Its been awhile since I had upadated the drivers. Do i just install it? or do i have to uninstall the current driver and then install the new one?

    Most people just install the new drivers over the old ones. This has the rare chance of causing problems but you'll notice if it does, then you can run Driver Sweeper if there is a problem and do a clean install. But it's not likely for there to be a problem so most people do not sweep old drivers first.
