    Anyone found anything interesting with these drivers or is it a tad bit early?

    If you have a fully new VGA, use the latest drivers as you can (included betas)

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Actually, to test out the card initially, I would use the newest "official" stable release. After I test out the card, and make sure it is working, I would then try the beta drivers.
