Default Forceware 177.39 leaked beta driver

Hi, new member here, just wanted to share some information. I recently installed the leaked Nvidia forceware 177.39 driver and PhysX 8.06.12 drivers on my system

AMD athlon 64 X2 6400+ at 3232MHz
Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX at 803/2033/1100(not next to my computer so the shader might be wrong by a couple mhz)
2x2GB patriot at 1.95v 5-5-5-23 800MHz

so far the PhysX support seems to work in unreal tournament 3 custom physX maps(no slow down at all regardless of the amount of physx objects flying around) and and 3d Mark Vantage.(slows down a bit on the crash test warmup but still managing 15-20fps) seems like I'm getting a pretty huge boost on my Vantage scores. although I didn't check it without so I'm not sure what it would be on the old drivers.

3dmark score P7494
CPU score 26129
graphics score 6055

I just finished running this test moments before I had to run off to work(where I am now ;) ) so I will do some more testing tomorrow. Fun fun
