[EDIT 5:20] well, thanks to Windows 7 Repair & Update, I now have some older (313.35) working drivers ... :rolleyes:

[EDIT 5:57] finally sorted ... when things go wrong, they tend to be vengeful. :D

People are quoting hardware failure with these drivers.... :/

No, I'll be honest, i've been hammering BF3 this weekend as it was the double XP event, and i have had no issues what so ever.

That said, I am just about to uninstall them and do a clean install of 314.22 - Just to be safe,....

I suggest you do the same if you have these installed.

Hmm, I've played MW3 multiplayer, Skyrim and a few other games and have had no issues but I guess better safe than sorry eh?

Here we go...

Actually, just had a thought, I've been suffering from compressed text in the latest Opera browser, but only since installing the 320:18

Another thing to note is that this seems only to negativity affect Fermi cards. :)

I went back to 314.22 and Opera Browser no longer displaying anomalies.

Just about to order 660, presumably that's a Kepler?

Still think I'll stick with the 314.22 though, it probably won't be long before Nvidia bring out an updated driver if past experience is anything to go by.
