    Actually, this has been on nVidia's site since July 5th, and it doesn't support all the video cards from the Geforce FX to Geforce 8 series, the 7800GT is missing from the support list for some odd reason.

    Thats why ive asked many moderators to scan for new threads and place them frontpage. Now its a 4 days new thus its not the best image for TPU.

    malware is staff, only news posting rights ;)

    And of course, not all of us read the entire forums - if you see a driver thats missed on the front page, PM a staff member!

    So because you have posted it you can't PM someone about it too?

    4 days ago i posted that along with 8 other subjects.
    I did notify 1 moderator for 4 of them and even so they didnt go frontpage. So why report the other 4 ? Besides i add new threads 3-4 times a day so i have to pm someone 4 times a day. Its just impossible.

    I have been running it for a few days now, seems a lot better over the 9X.XX series drivers in terms of stability of the control panel at least.

    Haven't really noticed any performance improvements, but no performance loss either.

    How about video playback? All I really want nVidia to fix is the screen tearing up with the top right half lagging behind the bottom left half when a video is played on windows media player, media player classic, winamp, etc.

    Ditto, it's at times easy to forget that even staff/mods have lives....I dont of course....but thats another story!
