It's not a discrepancy - those really *are* older drivers - the W7 drivers are still a bit behind the current Vista / XP drivers.

Case in point: The 181+ set of drivers (including my 185.2 Betas) have the ability to enable or disable PhysX use, whereas that latest W& driver does not....

Also, you might want to check and see if it even installs any sort o PhysX software, and if so, the version of that.

I am going to try both the 181.87 and the 182.08 drivers, but will probably end up going back to the 185.2 Betas - they have been the most stable for me on W7....

It did that with me too Skunk when I used to use Vista drivers, but my PC crashed when I had SLI enabled and played games. I tried the beta Windows 7 drivers from Nvidia and SLI works fine now.

If you need Rivatuner for OC or fan adjustment, then you kan use EVGA Precision. It works with 181.71
