    Are the new drivers any good for a 8800GT I installed them but I kept getting crashes on company of heroes :banghead: Anyway I think the install might have been bad but unless there is no performance differance I will go back to 169. Any suggestions, also on a note I have worse performance on my new card than I did with a gts 320 on same/lower settings this only happens on CoH. Any help will be thanked :D

    I noticed performance improvement and image quality appeared sharper.

    With the old drivers, the IQ was worse than my X1950pro and I thought this was the reason why the frames were that much better.

    Now it's right on par with the X1950pro but with way way smoother fps.
    I am now officially pleased with the purchase of my 8800GT.
