beta drivers aren't WQHL though....So really not that valid for futuremark and/or HWBOT.

I have found that my 3DMark has actually decreased since I loaded 158.22- not sure why though- It could be that my memory controller is starting to degrade (I just noticed I have at least one dead ram slots and my SuperPi scores seem lower too). Or it could be from data corruption from all the memory tweaking I've been doing lately...

Doesn't really matter as the Vista 32bit NVidea driver isn't WQHL either so I'd say thats a Futuremark problem as they are the ones dropping the ball on upgrades. I run the test and get the score regardless of their qualified support.
I would certainly like to see a new driver for Vista to try and fix some graphics issues when playing DVD's
