Version 175.19 brings improved 3D performance and load times for the above mentioned video cards in some DirectX 9 and OpenGL applications. It also patches several game and application compatibility issues. Please read the release notes for more information.

    you can use the USA.

    The 'UK' version is the international one, with more languages. As long as you use english, US and UK will work on your system.

    seemingly it doesnt support nvidia physX still on my 9800gtx :(
    installed both the new nvidia driver + the physx drivers and it still says no supported hardware.

    its possible this is older than the beta then, and has no physx support at all.

    PhysX is only supported in the 177.35 and 177.39 drivers, AFAIK nothing below those drivers will support PhysX.

    And yes, this driver is older than the 177.35 Beta driver, it takes time to go through WHQL certification.

    This is just an attempt to get ppl with 8800 cards to pick up the 9800-200 cards.
    They have already said that the driver for PhysX will be coming for the 8000 cards mid summer, so just wait, also you can run the new drivers with the physX driver, by using a moded INF file, and it does indeeed work on the 8800GT.

    Yes, I'm using the 177.35 beta right now on my 9800GTX and PhysX is working with it.

    I can't get it to work on my 8800GS on WinXP though.

    Have you tried modding your .inf?
    I've heard that works for 8800 users.

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. I can get the 177.35 driver to install just fine on my 8800GS, but the PhysX driver won't detect that the 8800GS is a PhysX Processor.

    they just steal them from other websites and claim them as their own. Usually there is nothing wrong with them, but they're never the original source.
