Random BSODs? I had that with the last lot for some reason, then upgraded to the Beta drivers recommended for GTAIV and had no more problems :)

These drivers give me a good FPS boost across the board, most noticeable in GTA4. I went from the 185.20's to this and its definitely a good move. :)

I cant compare them against the 180.84's which were the 'GTA drivers' as they crashed me pc everytime.

Am very happy with these though

I strongly suggest people check HERE and choose option 2 if you want the latest drivers for your specific card.

I now have the 181.20s installed :rolleyes:

nVidia do make specific drivers for specific cards ... sometimes they actually work with Vista to. ;)
