    NVIDIA has released an updated set of ForceWare drivers, version 97.92, for anyone using an 8800 based card on Windows XP. The official download is available here, there aren't too many fixes.

    And I've written a response in your post :D

    Thanks for the info, I thought I'd post it so more people saw it. Us newsreaders like an internal source for a change. :)

    I've modified the driver to work with pretty much all GeForce cards, and tested it on my 7900GTs, it works just fine so far, and even works with SLI(which the older 97 driver didn't do).:rockout:

    Nope, they work just fine with older cards, I really don't know why NVidia doesn't release these for their lower cards too. Even if they don't want to get them WHQL certified they could at least release them and call them beta drivers so I don't have to modify them every time so they install on my cards.

    they did the same with nforce1,2,3 drivers and stopped unifying them with nf4 even though the drivers are still compatable.
