The NGO NVIDIA Optimized Driver is a modified version of the NVIDIA ForceWare driver. The main purpose is to satisfy the users with better performance, image quality and compatibility. The NGO NVIDIA Optimized Driver can enhance your experience in games, multimedia and general usage.

This project is especially suited for enthusiasts and gamers that want to have the best gaming experience. This driver includes NVIDIA's new Control Panel. We’ve preferred to include the new Control Panel over the old one due to flexibility and stability reasons. The Driver has support for all GeForce/Quadro cards – including mobile series (Go) as well.

Interesting. Is there any kind of tradeoff for the improved performance? Like some kind of feature that is disabled or reduced but that commonly goes unnoticed anyway?

I had a lot of problems with the last NGO drivers I used for my 8800.
