    I always find it frustrating when I can't find the drivers I'm looking for, so I'm going to compile a list with links to where you can find all of the nVidia Forceware drivers. Any help is appreciated and if you find this useful please click the "thanks" button. With time the Physx drivers will be added as well!

    Note: All modded .INF files are immediately below the forceware associated to them. Also, special thanks goes out to Palgams for modifying these .INF files and uploading them.
    To learn how to replace the .inf file read this post.

    I wouldn't think that TPU had any others. Because I don't think you want to be in charge if someone downloads a Modded .inf file and it does something to their computer. Just because of a typo.
    But, you say "at least for now" which makes me hope for others! :)

    Agreed. It would be a shame to see this thread sink through the pages of forum history.

    I think you should continue to do this. AT lease continue with the ones that we don't have here at TPU. It does help out us on where to look for the driver that we just had but deleted... Or even the one that was the better of the bunch for that person.
    I just believe that W1zzard was saying that TPU all ready has the download section for Nvidia. But, I say go on. It's not hurting anyone.. That I can see at lease

    You can add *.inf links to 177.79 and 177.83. These two came without sub-8 support, so these inf's add support to 6. and 7. series. 177.89 & up has full 6 and up support.

    IMO the biggest improvement will be for NV's top cards (GT200 & so) because Nvidia is focused on them most. Name "Big Bang" makes me think that Nvidia is hiding something :laugh:
    But good things comes to those who waits :)
    <16 days left.

    added 174.53, 174.74, 175.16, and 175.19.

    Is there enough demand for Linux drivers as well or should I just keep it windows based?
