Best graphics driver for 8800GT 512mb card?

I'm not exactly sure on how you check what driver version you have?

But what's the best one to have from Nvidia for Windows 7 for build 7264 and up?

Hi ztmike.......


use this app to check GPU & driver status...... GPUZ

in regards to the ''best'' driver, there's really no answer other than just use the latest one 186.21, if your rig dont play nice with them just work your way backwards through driver revisions until it does......

I forgot about that program..

I have 185.93

I been playing Left 4 Dead without any problems..I was just wondering if there's a certain driver that works best with Windows 7, but I guess not.

Thanks

no, i cant say ive noticed any real performance boost from the 18x.xx NV drivers while in W7.....

there are differences but they're too small to stand out.... IMO
