My System Specs

Default !!WARNING!!

Nvidia 320.00 are insanely bugged,happened twice in 4 days ,it randomly starts to freeze at 0.05 FPS and the GPU fan is crazy,i have to put computer in sleep mode,hard with 0.05 FPS and then it works again,and it says that drivers stopped responding,it's really annoying,not like a basic "drivers stopped working" with a quick black screen...

You might want to provide some actual feedback on this aside from your own personal experience.

And FYI 320.00 are beta drivers.

Of course,i checked Geforce forums and other forums,a lot of people have this problem.

The thing is i do not recommend these drivers,stick to the previous ones. I know they are beta,but they are the most bugged drivers i have ever seen.It's almost scary how it crashes the card...

I just played BF3 for 2 hours with them on my GTX690 under Windows 8. Absolutely no problems.

So I wouldn't say they're bad drivers by any means. Though I would say the picture quality was reduced, it felt like BF3 was blurrier than normal.

Haha !!!!!

As someone who bricked a card on the whole 191 fiasco , my advice is this :

always WAIT FOR 1 MONTH ! ....before doing new drivers.....and look and see if it's borking systems.

I always wait for WHQL drivers. I want a system that works and is stable, so why risk the PITA that is beta drivers.
