    Yea, i scrolled thru inf file and it had all neccesary info about cards.
    If Cold Storm's given *.inf doesn't work for someone, try this (i pasted all cards info from 175 over this) 32 bit Vista BTW
    Still waiting for 32 and 64 bit XP's *.inf's :)
    And full Cuda Physix support too :)

    thanks heaps for trying dude, and thanks for the info about how you did the mods, all very helpful.

    i have vista x64 sp1 ready to install but if my mate cant use 177.26 with them then im reluctant to make the move, performance is so darn good right now.

    rock awn Nvidia :rockout:

    My old vantage score was P7415 with my GPUs at 775Mhz, I couldn't get them stable at that speed this time so I just did my 24/7 clocks and I got a 500pt boost from these drivers :rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout:
    Also I was playing crysis earlier and I was thinking "hell, if anything these lowered my frames!" then I realized I had SLi off, played it with SLi on and it was night and day. Thanks alot guys.

    Edit: My old Vantaga score, just realized I never OCed my ram this time around either

    Of course, it's 7:28 AM right now, and i got up 30 minutes ago :)
    I don't know if they are or aren't CUDA-enabled-cards-only drivers, so someone with 5. to 7. series GeForce can try them on and let us now if they works ;)

    I would like to volunteer for 7 series card, heh d/ling the drivers for xp x64 now.. Btw I only got OpenGL Fur Benchmark, couple of games CoD4, and Grid to test... I could run both on high with my panels native res 1024x768, although CoD4 with minimal shadows and a bit of gfx tweaks. Hope it's ok?

    thanks for trying pagalms, it really means a lot, and especially explaining how you did it along the way, i really liked that.

    all i ever had to modify for myself was the [version] string and the Localizable Strings, so im glad you mentioned your process.

    SO WIN :D and whats weird is that word of these drivers on 8xxx/9xxx cards hasn't gotten out yet! the world doesn't yet know how awesome they are! boy are they in for a surprise......

    Oh man... I know that now! Tinkering with it made my card almost right there in Vantage with my CPU... These drivers are just killer with the 9800gx2!
