    O/T Anyone tryed StarStorm Drivers for nivida cards??

    Currently there are 3 versions of Starstorm drivers, they are:

    X = Good Performance/Good Quality : A Performance boost over original Nvidia drivers as well as a Good ammount of quality . These are the same as the "P" driver released in recent drivers

    XQ = Xtream Quality/Good performance : Major amount of Quality expecialy in textures as well as a good performance boost. These are the same as the Q driver released in recent drivers.

    B = Benchmarking: These drivers were made specificly for benchmarking purposes but can be use in games when LevelOfDetail is decreased to 0.


    You can get them from guru3d.com??

    Is it worth putting them in???

          Sounds like hacks to me.

          Or that it'll turn FFXI into a giant arena of fog like the forcewares did.

                  Hacked drivers....hmmmm....don't think I trust them. :weird: Probably won't make much of a difference on my poor GF3 anyways.

                    Wow i think ive just downloaded the perfect drivers for my GF4 ti 4200! I mean i got now a FPS increase of at last +30, for the record i downloaded the performance drivers, not the quality, someone mentioned that u will probably lose FPS with quality instead of performances! thx for posting, UT2k3 runs much nicer now!

                    i advice u to take a look at this forum first: http://forums.guru3d.com/forumdisplay.php?&forumid=47

                    before u start downloading those drivers, For the GF4 ti4200 they recommend the 44.67q drivers... and i do recommend it aswell

                      My XP machine crashed repeatedly with these drivers. (FX 5900 Ultra 256MB)

                        How would it increase you botmatch, a CPU test?:down:

                        A nearly a 100% performance gain in flyby? You're full of ****.

                          from what ive read star storm drivers lower ur quality to improve speed...... just like the old nvidia drivers used todo.

                            I tried-em, got slower, tried other ones and got the same FPS, tried speedy ones, got a headache from poor visual quality.

                            I then tried the Forceware 53.06 and gained FPS. The visuals are as good/better than the 53.03. I'm happy, and the Star-**** drivers can fade away to where they belong. Seriously, the 53.06 are faster, seem to be a tad more stable, and the quality is unaffected.

                              Botmatch isn't all CPU

                              The CPU only controls the Bots

                              There is still the BSP, Staticmeshes, Textures, Player models, emitters, and much more that have to be rendered by your video card (and it's drivers)

                              So next time, before acting like an ***, do your research
