These ones weren't good for me, random hard locks. Rolling back to 174.74 seems to have fixed it.

Quite the oppositie for me, for a 9800GTX the 174 drivers sucked for me. These are sweet, best IQ , good AA speeds, I'm happy.

I haven't tried these new beta drivers yet as my gaming rig doesn't have a net connection.

Heh... I got a kick out of the high quality of the release notes... maybe if they spent some time coding the drivers instead of putting out a manual for each release they could release a driver more often.... :)

I loaded these drivers and now I cant even get into Windows. I tried everything and all I can do about it is format and reinstall.

Man that sucks. I think I'll stick with my 174 drivers.
