    These are currently the official driver released by NVIDIA for most newer display cards (that is, when you go to NVIDIA's web site and select "download drivers" you'll get these). They are WHQL certified.

    Got it thanks. I just installed it. No issues so far. FInished Assassin's Creed and I am not sure but I noticed higher fps than before...good set of drivers so far. Will give a test run on some other games installed on my rig.

    I'm getting stability issues when playing video (AVI files in paticalur with xvid, divx, AC3 codecs), other then that very solid. But its intermitant, have to play like 30 + different files before stability gets to be a problem.

    System: MacPro 2x quad, 8800gtx, Vista 64

    This driver seems to have some problems with planar YUV format and deinterlace (planar YUV alone or deinterlance with YUY2 are ok). I'm using a GeForce 9600GT with Windows XP.

    I played a MP game of vegas with a few friends and I remember performance definitely improving in the levels we played where previously I would have stuttering. I really love this driver set!
