ever since 177 drivers i have been very very pleased with where nvidia is going.

since those releases performance has just been going up and up. my 9800GTX picked up at least 25% more performance from drivers alone over the short few months i had it, and we've all seen how GT200 does on 18x.xx drivers compared to pre 178, the difference is stonking.

No issues going from 180.48 WHQL to these, I reverted back to 180.48's for Fallout3 stability, I was getting random CTD's beforehand. I consider these still under testing, but so far so good! I did lose the 2D clocks at desktop, but I'm not too worried, only increased my idle temps by about 2C and usually this GPU is either working in F@H or while I'm gaming or both at the same time depending on the game.
