NVIDIA drivers - Vista drivers or 7 drivers?

Which version should I use for the NVIDIA drivers, the Vista version or the 7 version?

Download the windows 7 drivers from nvidia's website, not from Windows update assuming you have Windows 7 installed somewhere as you state your running vistain your profile.

Ok, I'll do that, thanks. By the way, it's true that I have Vista on my PC, but I set up a dual-boot with Vista and 7 build 7100 about half hour ago and haven't updated my profile yet... So far so good, even though I only configured some basic stuff, now to install the drivers and then programs...

You might want to be brave and only use windows 7 with the rc build

I'm actually probably gonna do that, I sure hope so anyway. I'm just installing all the stuff I use and see if it works fine on 7. If it does... Goodbye Vista!
And I have a feeling that all, or nearly all of my stuff will work on 7! I sure hope so! It seems like a great OS!

I'm using the 185 drivers because the official 181 would not play pro street or undercover. When I installed them they were actually recognized as windows 7 drivers and all my games play sweet. of course if you have no such problems then as swarfega says stick with 181.

Im not so sure that they are actually recognised as windows 7 drivers or whether the driver is just picking up the name of the OS string.
