    So at this point can we just assume that NVidia has dropped support for all of its cards that don't start with an 8 and all OSes that don't start with a V and end with an ISTA?

    I really would like to upgrade from the extremely buggy 93.81 driver sometime soon, but seeing as how their last driver release for anyting that wasn't Vista or an 8800 was over 2 months ago, I don't thing I will see a new driver any time soon.

    Did you miss the entire point of my post?

    8800+XP:Check
    Others+Vista:Check
    Others+XP:Houston we have a problem

    So, while the users of Vista or 8800 series cards and get to enjoy pretty decent WHQL certified drivers, the users of older cards that still use XP have been stuck using the complete pile of crap driver know as 93.71 for over two months now.

    Yes, I know, but those aren't offically released like that from NVidia, and by the way there is a 97.28 version like that also, and you can actually modify the later version to work too.:D

    But again, you seem to be missing one important part of my post, WHQL, and the fact that NVidia isn't aren't actually releasing the drivers this way. They are simply hacked to work with other cards.

    the asus drivers arent hacked as far as im aware, all native support. and im sure im not the only one to say nobody cares if the driver is beta or not, if it works, it works, we all get a small perf boost, yay!

    1.) I care(not really though, I just want them to work)
    2.) Did I mention why they aren't WHQL certified? No. Well it is a minor issue of them breaking SLI in all the lower cards. I have never successfully been able to enable SLI on my 7900GTs using any driver higher than the 93.81. Whenever I try the machine just reboots instantly and SLI remains disabled.
