mmm drivers.

oh it should be noted these are still betas


the release notes say they added custom resolution support to vista - AT LAST!
(i cant use component HDTV output and had to buy a DVI->HDMI adaptor cause this was missing)

:D my HDMI screen is now detected as a digital flat panel, so i can use Nvidias settings to disable scaling - previously, i had to use the TV remote to toggle to 4:3 mode for example, whereas now the video card does it for me.
