    I see not change... they have not cared about the 7 series for a while. Too bad.

    Actually I just downloaded the latest version and it fixed it, I had an older one that didn't recognize the drivers, had to do config alterations when I initially got it. Its all good now though. :)

    You mean also the 8800GT? Sounds too good to be true! I'll be trying them out tomorrow (now it's past 2:00AM :eek: and I should be in bed!)

    Edit: how did it go for you Wile_E?

    Have tried these drivers 4 days ago had problem with them.

    While in game at random it would lock up then screen would slowly start to fade to black and back to normal.

    Well, they don't seem to be playing nice with RivaTuner so far, but that could just be the extremely ridiculous clocks I'm going for. lol. Trying to get it to bench at 1GHz core. :D Haven't tested normal settings yet. I'll do that and get back to this thread.

    DV does not work with Vista64, i herd that you can set it, when you first install them, but if you inable SLI it does not work after that.

    I wouldn't hold your breath for any drivers that will do anything with 7 series perfomance. If you input the 7 series into the driver search on Nvidias website, it brings up 169.21 as the recommended driver. As far as they are concerned, the 7 series is obselete and nothing after169.21 is going to make any difference to it, unless its by conicidence.

    Well, considering they just sent me 3 more to try to achieve my goal, I'm gonna guess we will be smelling burnt mosfets at least a couple times in the next few days. lol.

    Well, I had high hopes since the Driver download actually suggest this driver for my 512GTS.
    But to my dismay, I have had problems with Madden08' and COD4 has locked up on me.:ohwell:
    Time to go back to 169.21 unless someone can suggest a better driver for me.
