    As far as I can tell, the AA-bug is gone, so you can set specific AA settings for your games again, as opposed to being forced to make global ones - through the CP. Also the CP has been updated and it has an option to only display games which are on your system. This seems to miss out my Steam games though.

    The 171s were absolute garbage in anything but Crysis-- and unstable. These bring them back to near the best of 169... with lots of new functionality.

    I did a new record on 3DMark06 with these 174.12, now I get 9719pts vs about 9450. Maybe there isn't a big diff vs 169.32 but there sure is vs the 171.xx since those sucks.

    The drivers I have come from EVGA's website and my 8800GTs are EVGA boards and are WHQL so I am not worried about them not being from Nvidia tbh.

    not from nVidia anyway.

    i'm still using the drivers that windows update provides (169.06), because i just reinstalled my system not too long ago.

    personally, i'm not a big fan of customized/tweaked drivers from various websites.

    on the one hand you don't know what they might've included beyond the driver.

    on the other hand, you don't know what (possibly hidden) settings are F***ing your computer when it locks up.

    cause a couple of them will tweak settings you might not have access to... and possibly incompatible with.

    Yeah I think I will wait to hear more about these drivers on the guru3d forums.

    Thanks for the link man ... I usually am all over this but I am a bit behind the times it would appear.

    Edit: From what I am reading I think I will just stick with my 169.32 WHQL drivers.

    The whole WHQL process is stupid imo.

    And it seems to bear out that the 174.12s are the best performers, but only slightly better than the 169.38s.
    Thanks! I'll have to bookmark that site
