Hmm, new drivers. Anybody else noticed that nvidas drivers have been pretty poor for months now? 310.70 was the last set that didn't crash any game. From there onwards, they do. I think they've screwed with SLI and haven't fixed it yet.

Feels like AMD again

I tried this latest beta and found the performance to be quite poor. I went back to the latest 314.22 driver.

Poor is no good

The newer drivers have been having lots of dramas with multiple monitors (non-surround) and increased amounts of driver stopped responding as well. I guess the only way I'll know is to install them. I am playing a few of the newer titles and need the improvements.
