    NVIDIA has updated its beta ForceWare driver to version 169.44, which supports just about all GeForce 6, 7 and 8 series graphics cards, although the 9600 GT is not listed as being supported. This driver is intended for use with the recently released Crysis 1.2 patch, and the 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

    With all these beta drivers released... I finally went to nvidia.com to see if I should get the latest non-beta driver. Being as I haden't updated the drivers in a few months, I figured there would be an update... But there isn't.

    Anyways.... how stable are these beta drivers normally? And why should I get them? Or should I not get them? They probably haven't made any changes to the 7950gt drivers, right? So I should just keep mine? I have no problems anyways.

    Usually they are stable. I just loaded them and so far they are good, but I haven't tested them on any games yet. The Crysis 1.2 patch however is giving me trouble.

    This has been out for a while, no? I'm on beta 171.20.

    I think that the 171.20 beta drivers were to support the 9xxx series while this release adds features for the 6,7, and 8 series.
