Hrmmmmm......

No release notes about the "bug fixes" (unless there's something once they're installed). I'll wait for non-beta drivers thank you.

Non-beta, really? You might be wating pretty long since its been 3 Months since WHQL.

GURU3D will tell you if they are good or not..
IMO, use 260.63-Everyone loves them, plus you get some nice boosts in pref.

The 89 have broken my control panel avoid them.

^^ Same here with 260.63.....BSOD's ( a few anyhow....)., also some "strange anomalies with nvcp and Sli / PhysX selections)..went back to 258.95 WHQL....been using 260.89 Beta since last evening and put it through some gaming paces....seems alright so far!

EDIT: Day 2..some serious Gaming today on this new Beta....no issues at all Even hooked up my 32" Toshiba 1920 1080 to my GPU#1 via mini HDMI to HDMI and all was fine....

No longer a 4c Delta between GPU #1 and #2...its now a 2C Delta...all in all I'm happy with this Release...

please a little more detail man....what do you mean the Driver "broke" your cp...as in your nvcp...? Sorry I don't follow...
btw...certainly not everyone was raving over the 260.63 Release

Sorry don't mean to derail the thread or anything but what would be the best drivers for SLI 470s? I'm using WHQL 258.96 right now..are the betas like 260.63 that much better?

I'd probably go with the 258.96 drivers seeing as the beta drivers don't seem to inspire a whole lot of confidence at times.

NVIDIA`s WHQL release schedule is one per quarter. Expect a new WHQL very soon.

Did they even release an official driver for the GTX 450 yet?
