The only driver that works with nfsprostreet with some locks, maybe once every couple days is wddm 1.1 pre release. MOH airborne works so far with the 181.71.

Well, Mass Effect works and so does Mirror's Edge. Haven't tried Fallout 3 or L4D yet.

Man! Now I think I might have to reinstall W7!

Not enough room on my SSD for two OS, though.
