    all i had to change in mine was this:


    [Version]
    Signature = "$Windows NT$"
    Provider = %NVIDIA%
    ClassGUID = {4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    Class = Display
    CatalogFile = NV_DISP.CAT
    DriverVer = 05/22/2008, 6.14.11.7726

    and added my hardware string (9800GTX)

    Ok got it working, found a vista64 modded inf on another forum.

    So far so good, tested in my new favorite game (GRID)

    2008-06-15 11:06:51 - grid
    Frames: 416 - Time: 6760ms - Avg: 61.538 - Min: 49 - Max: 68

    2008-06-15 11:07:06 - grid
    Frames: 375 - Time: 6150ms - Avg: 60.975 - Min: 59 - Max: 63

    2008-06-15 11:42:11 - grid
    Frames: 605 - Time: 9082ms - Avg: 66.615 - Min: 57 - Max: 73

    2008-06-15 11:42:29 - grid
    Frames: 563 - Time: 8533ms - Avg: 65.979 - Min: 60 - Max: 68


    Bottom two tests are with the new driver.. Nice 5-6frame improvement on the average.. Minimum frames went up too.

    Unpack drivers and swap original nv4_disp.inf with this one and install.

    I'm not sure I'm putting it in the right directory, should I be putting it in the main directory or the "original inf(s)" file?
