Anyone know if Source games (CSS/TF2/L4D) have the texture crashing bug like 185's? I'm still running 181's because of that...

What do you mean by texture crashing bug? Which version of the 181's are you running?

This is interesting : Added support to make all GPUs within an SLI group available for CUDA applications to use.

Hrm, could this be an impromptu way of fixing the dreaded shader bug?

(while folding)

Funny but those are not officially released yet. Those are bad BTW, I would highly recommend sticking to the 182.50 for now - or the latest officials .18 - the new ones are bad, they have some issues and drops - NVIDIA has been doing a crappy job lately with its beta drivers........if it's not the AA bug it's something else.
