    I have them, don't know if it's the drivers or not but a lot of games get terrible graphics glitches.
    Come to think of it. No it's not my drivers because it happened on my 9500GT too. Go for it, boosted my fps by 20-30 in some games.

    There seems to be mixed results on the 190.56 driver looking at the forums at the Guru.

    I tried the 190.56 and had a weird issue with not being able to open GTA IV after installing the driver fresh (used Driver Cleaner, etc.) with W7 32 bit. I had to remove it and re-install my previous 185.85 driver, although the 186.18 works fine for me as well. No real difference in points on Vantage for me with the 190's over either of the other drivers, after it broke GTA I didn't bother doing any other games with it.
    Only way to see if it will work for you would be to try it on your system (good luck:p)

    Glad they worked out for you. Shouldn't be too long before we see the next 190 series WHQL driver.

    Ive been using them since they landed on a few setups, both using the rig in my stats.

    one setup was the 260's in SLI, but I've also tried a GTX280 with 9800GT dedicated physx and that runs buttery smooth too.

    Keepers for me brah.

    I recently installed 190.38 on my system and it gave 4 BSOD in 12 hours or less, without gaming!

    I was just watching a few vids and doing work.

    Went back to 182.50 and it was fine, no BSOD anymore.

    I'd probably wait for the next WHQL.

    Glad to see there's finally a new driver people are saying increases performance... last few releases everyone has been saying performance dropped. That should never be the case, unless they were fixing a major stability bug. Also noticing these drivers are 28 megs smaller than 190.38... nice.

    Edit*
    I got a 4% increase in crysis at 1080p vs 190.38.

    190.xx drivers WHQL or not seem to be really flaky, at least as far as my own setup is concerned. I keep going back to 186.18 WHQL since I seem to have the least amount of trouble with them. One major issue I noticed with various 190.xx drivers is that I have to reinstall them every time I move my 2nd card to another slot. (I have SLI). That was not an issue with 18x.xx drivers.

    ive been ising 182.xx since they came out. Nvidia's drivers are just crap recently... I lose at least 10%-15% in sli when i upgrade the drivers to anything above 182.xx.

    Such awful driver releases recently, its so disappointing especially when ATI's drivers are giving 10-30% performance gains and we are losing it.
