Default MORE NVidia Betas 169.04

NVIDIA ForceWare 169.04 Beta Released
One day after 169.02 we have another set of beta NVIDIA drivers: 169.04 which supports 6, 7 and 8, FX cards on XP

This supposedly fixes some compatibility issues and enhances performance futher and is, of course, the recommended driver for TimeShift and Crysis

I wish I had the option, but I have to plan a trip to the land of high-speed with laptop in hand to download such goodies- I'll fetch it tommorrow if I hear good things.

Under Vista 64, these drivers did correct a 3D corruption problem that I experienced while playing the Crysis demo. To me, that is the only thing these beta drivers have fixed.
