Yes, the drivers are for Windows 7 x64. I even redownloaded the drivers 3 times and two diffrent versions.

Obviously not your machine your working on today Beta,

Is it the AGP or PCI-E version of the 8800? Perhaps the AGP drivers will need installing for the chipset first?

Wait. Does a Nvidia Chipset MB need the non Microsoft Chipset drivers installed before the GPU drivers can be installed? I have not worked on many Nvidia Chipset MB.

The chipset drivers are usually the first I install (if needed) and nvidia is the rule for this exception, I have only owned one nForce board before now, but that was an XP system so I used nLite to integrate the drivers before install. I have not had as much sucess with RT7Lite on windows 7.
