    Looks good, but I rarely download beta drivers. I'll just wait for the WHQL ones.

        Oops

        If it isn't on the official nVidia page, I consider them beta drivers. I'll still download them though.

            BTW:
            Right now there is a bug in the 56.56 driver that causes a dramatic performance regression from 53.03 (current driver) in the new UT 2004 demo. NVIDIA is working to fix the bug ASAP, a new release is slated on MArch 1st. Mean time, please note that UT 2004 scores are unrealistically low. The scores are fine on 53.03.
            I'll stick to my current drivers, thank you very much

                Are these worth it for a geforce 4?

                  yes, every new stable driver is good for GF4 but not really for olders ones.
