^^^^ What games have you tried and any improvements running a couple of Benches? I just installed the latest 320.xx WHQL a couple of nights ago and it seems fine so far, other than a glitch with Shaders when changing Video Settings, minor improvements with Benchmarks vs 314.xx WHQL

I have ARMA 3-Borderlands 2-Crysis 3-Far Cry- 3Metro LL-Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 and a few others All played smooth as butter. I don't benchmark anymore but I can honestly say these are damn good drivers. All Nvidia cards. If you have a minute,read what others have said at Guru 3D. http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=379742 5 or 6 pages of people that also like the 320.39s.

Placebo effect. There are literally zero improvements from these. Frame delivery remains the same, as do average frame rates.

The ONLY thing that's different in these drivers is the addition of support for the GTX 760. This comes directly from NVIDIA.

Indeed.. I always read the Release-notes and see if there is anything even beneficial to me and even then wait a few weeks to see is there any issues with the drives that would make me revert anyway.

Not into bricking things so that I can test something I bought as a product.

Please remember the release notes for NVIDIA cards relate to major driver iterations rather than minor ones.

For example, when they say "15% improvement for Bioshock" that means a 15% improvement from 319.xx to 320.xx, NOT 320.15 to 320.39.
