This is mainly for Bioshock. So if you plan to play Bioshock, get these drivers.

I haven't looked for changes yet....maybe tonight....but i'm sure there's other fixes in there other than support for bioshock.

BETA's sometimes are good. (this one wasn't at 1st) nVidia in the last couple releases added a "removal" function to the driver install process eliminating the need for apps like driver cleaner and such, thing is in this release i think it's broke (or i got a corrupted download 1st time). during install i got a BSOD and that's a rare find in XP/Vista land. I rebooted and manually removed the old driver/ re downloaded the file and ran the setup. All's good so far.

I installed these drivers the other night, they give a bit of a FPS boost to Bioshock, nothing else though from what I can tell.

If you haven't played the Bioshock demo though, I highly recommend you do!
