    NVIDIA has released an updated version of the WHQL certified ForceWare driver for Windows Vista, taking the version number to 158.24. This driver works with all GeForce series 6, 7 and 8 cards running on Vista, although DirectX 10 support is obviously only available on the series 8 cards. Please note, if you are wanting to use DirectX 10 with SLI you will need to download the 158.43 beta driver, as no WHQL driver supports this feature yet. The 158.24 driver fixes numerous game and application compatibility problems, offers increased performance in 3D applications and adds support for Vertical Sync in DirectX applications. You can download the 32-bit driver here and the 64-bit driver here.

    They're WHQL certified, that's the main difference, 43 just adds SLI support, I guess 45 does that too. Other changes are most likely minor.

    158.45 beta is designed for company of heroes in DX10. If you run DX10 apps, run the beta - if not, go this WHQL.

    The 158.45 has generally improved DX10 performance not just in Company of heroes 1,7.

    Lost Planet , COH and soon many more games. On the other hand yes the 158.45 are quite useless but the latest ones nevertheless :)
