The driver, fully featured and including a control panel, is only recommended for people using Microsoft Windows Vista RC2 (build 5744) or later. Anyone who tries to install this on Vista RC1 or build version 5743 or earlier will get errors. Otherwise, NVIDIA is the first graphics card manufacturer to make WHQL drivers for Windows Vista RC2. The driver also enhances performance in DirectX9 applications as well as OpenGL. You can download the driver in 64-bit flavor or 32-bit flavor.

Excellent news, thanks "Z"... I've been meaning to tryout VISTA, but having trouble 'fitting the task in' lately...

LOL, because I spent a great deal of time & my bandwidth hauling the RC1 build in, & not using it... & now, the same w/ the latest RC2 of VISTA in here as well!

(& I will check it out @ some point)...

* MOSTLY, this news post of your, for me @ least, was finding out the info. (good to know) when I do get around to installing & trying RC2, is that the last driver I hauled in from NVidia for VISTA RC1 won't work fully/properly, & this one will!
