    NVIDIA has updated its beta ForceWare driver to version 169.09, which supports just about all GeForce FX, 6, 7 and 8 series graphics cards including the 8800 GT. The only changes in this release are application and compatibility fixes, and this is the recommended driver for Crysis. Download locations are as follows:
    • Windows XP 32-bit – here
    • Windows XP 64-bit – here
    • Windows Vista 32-bit – here
    • Windows Vista 64-bit – here

    I hope so... The retail version isn't any different from the demo, performance-wise.

    What did you use before Evil mate?

    I want to give these a go, for DX10 very high but..if nhancer and riva don't work, I gotta modify both program's code and that's such a pain in the ass.


    EDIT: Nhancer 2.3.2 out..woohoO!

    Yes, everything was going well until I brought up Riva and got the dreaded not supported message. Yet I ignore it, then I goto set my clocks, and unfortunatley...the 3d Performance won't separate from the 2d setting.

    Everytime I set say 630 core, then go and check the 2d, it's also 630. I set it to something like 550, then my 3d performance goes back down to 550. And yes, I did tell it to differentiate the 2d/3d settings.

    Going to go back to 2.06 beta.
