My System Specs

Default NVidia Beta 191.00 Drivers

Posted on the Evga Forum ..apparantly they :
1. Fix the "downclocking" of GPU's issue (GPU's stuck on 3D Mode upon exiting 3D Apps)
2. Provided some folks with Benchmark gains.
3. No reported anomalies from a few "guinea pigs"

Apparantly this driver comes complete with:
PhysX
CUDA
NVCP

Unfortunately I'm at work and cannot try these out. The fellows that tried them out (Evga Forum) claim that many of the issues with the 190.xx drivers seem to be sorted out.

They seem okay for Win 7, no loss/gain in PPD for now... Install worked fine one single card rigs... It seemed to freak out the tri- 9600GSO rig for a bit, but that runs fine now too. Mind you though, I still get BSOD's caused by nvlddmkm.sys (Error: STOP 0x00000116), but they were also there on the 190.38/190.62 drivers. Haven't tested any games yet though... :( too busy folding :)

It appears as though the nview issues from the 190.62 set have been corrected.

Been trying to download these for the last hour from rabidscare and keep getting the same crap about trying again in 2 minutes

Searched the net and found a couple other links for those having the same problem with the wait time.
