    their already posted up..

    get winrar DL the driver decompress it so its a folder

    dl the pre modded inf in post 114 i think copy it into the folder and when it asks to overwrite say yes and then run the set up :)

    here at tpu we like doing thigs for ppl so they dont do them by themselves. hivemind FTW

    Hey Cold Storm, shall we both run 3dmark 06' @ 1920x1200 without AA then with 4xAA, and see how our 9 series cards scale at high res with the new drivers? if that res is unsupported tell me and we can both do a different res.

    i just say this because i am able to achieve ~16,850 with my single card, so it will be interesting to load them up more.

    you mean no gfx acceleration? does it give you any specific errors?

    NVIDIA_G84.DEV_0400.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS"

    modded full .inf files are in post 114, theyre working for most, and have support for 6-9 series cards

    no probs man, i want everyone with cuda enabled cards to get onto 177 drivers, as i am to believe the gains are across the board... itll be nice to see if an 8600GTS picks up 20% more FPS!

    Using the modified drivers I can install it, but Rivatuner doesn't recognize the drivers on the 177.35 or 177.26. I am forced to use 169.32 and rivatuner is okay with that. Most recent version of Rivatuner.

    yeah my aquamark score has been flaky all round, id recommend trying a crysis bench, ut3 bench, or devil may cry 4 bench, hec even 3dmark 06 should go up heaps from anything pre 177
