    I had my first crash last night. EVGA GTX460SC 1GB. Rolled driver back to 314.22.

    Up until now driver 320.18 seemed stable, have been using since release. When it crashed, screen went black and system seemed to stop like a power outage /brownout. Fans stopped and the whole system appeared to momentarily shut off. I have a UPS so It was strange the way it occurred.
    I got a message that the driver failed and has recovered. The desktop was not immediately recoverable and I had to use task manager to shut down IE and the web page I was viewing (looking at new fly fishing gear @ http://www.tridentflyfishing.com/.) After that I could access things normally...(unsure)

    Did a custom, clean, reinstall of 314.22 and had to reboot.
    I have also been using EVGA Precision 4.2.0.2143 with a heavy fan curve, held mostly under 50c.
    29c-30c at idle. I've used every version of Precision since this card was new.

    How did you modify the inf?

    Nevermind, going to try the 320.11 that comes with the 780s. Screw this 320.18 BS.

    Nvidia experience says BETA.

    On a side note I kinda miss seeing your Oblivion avatar, that made me laugh every time. Funny times in that game :toast:

    One wonders how nvidia could have screwed up so badly with 320.18, but at least they're acknowledging the problems and putting them right.

    Ha! Sadly I don't have Oblivion installed anymore, maybe a folder saved somewhere but I don't remember.

    To be fair I'm not that forgiving towards a company that charges a premium for everything.

    They should not roll out defective WHQLs, especially with the position they cover in the market.
    qubit says thanks.
