I installed the new driver and started getting crash to desktop issues in BFBC2...
That's something I have not experienced for many months...

I lost 25-30fps in iRacing and also a decrease with DCS Blackshark.
275.50 and 275.33 were better for me.

Using the 280.26s, I just had a black screen for a few seconds while browsing the web, MSI Afterburner showed 0% fan and 0 temp for that time it was black. Uninstalled and went to the 275.33 whql. Here goes. Hope it's not the card, it is new however.

Rumor is these drivers are bunk, a friend sent me a link to this that says there is heat issues with these drivers too. I think it is wise to stay away from these.

If this keeps up, Team Green might just slide down to be as bad as Team Red for drivers.

Strange, I've had less issues with these drivers than the 27x drivers. Those were incredibly terrible for all my 4xx cards. I've noticed more "black screens" in flash player acceleration though. Idle and low load temps are very jumpy too, but once they settle down they're a lot lower than before. (5-6c)
