    Code:
    ; Localizable Strings
    NVIDIA                 = "NVIDIA"
    NVIDIA_GT200.DEV_05E1.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280"
    NVIDIA_GT200.DEV_05E2.1  = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260"
    [B]NVIDIA_BR02.DEV_02E1.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS"[/B]
    NVIDIA_Win2KDualView   = "NVIDIA Dualview"
    NVIDIA_MultiView       = "NVIDIA Multiview"
    DiskID1 = "NVIDIA Windows XP x64 Edition Driver Library Installation Disk 1"
    NVSVC.name = "NVIDIA Display Driver Service"
    NVSVC.desc = "Provides system and desktop level support to the NVIDIA display driver"
    NVUninstall.desc = "NVIDIA Display Driver"
    Here's what I did, or should I place it into other sections of the INI. Got my ID off a c++ code from nvidia and compiled it to an exe file.. Just rename the attachment to .exe.

    Btw please tell me if I need to paste/insert the bolded text to other sections of the inf.

    Ty

    EDIT: BAH, hehe I'm blind! Saw your post with the modded infs lool gonna try installing now and post back... Brb

    all i had to do in mine to get them to work was add the 9800GTX DEV string to the ; Localizable Strings section.

    however other have had to add much more to get them to work.

    and yet others still have had no success whatsoever.

    best of luck dude, everyone needs these drivers :D

    So i wonder if the 177.34's will work on the G92 aswell? They give the 200 Series cards a boost over the 177.26's.

    Im liking this, i have the highest single gpu vantage score now :p

    first off WOW


    all tests max settings, Devil may cry 4 demo benchmark

    1920x1200 +4xAA
    Q6600 @ 3591mhz
    9800GTX @ 800/2000/2500
    DDR2@ 798mhz

    http://www.techpowerup.org/uploaded.php?file=080617/9800GTX_174.74_vs_177.26_vs177.35.jpg

    here are the differences in moving from 174.74 drivers to 177.26, i am HIGHLY impressed.

    Scene 1: +15.8%
    Scene 2: +14.4%
    Scene 3: +15.2%
    Scene 4: +17.2%

    this is the increase from 177.26 to 177.35


    Scene 1: +5.2%
    Scene 2: +5.7%
    Scene 3: +8.9%
    Scene 4: -0.9%

    so the overall increase from 174.74 to 177.35 :eek:


    Scene 1: +20.2%
    Scene 2: +19.2%
    Scene 3: +22.6%
    Scene 4: +16.5%

    especially take note of how different the graphs themselves look going from 174.74 to 177.35 :rockout:

    WOW nvidia, you've pulled through again for us, i eagerly await the next release!
