yes I installed the 196.75 fdor BC2 and my fans both went to ZERO on my SLI 260's... I didn't notice right away and just sitting idle my temps went to 96, and 104C... yes C

was very scary... They still work ok thankfully or I'd have been very angry. I'm now on 196.21.. Check out where my mouse was showing the temps. I cranked the fan to above 70% and waited. They came down pretty fast. but was still a very scary moment for me. (but would have gave me reason to upgrade to Fermi)

but I'll be getting Fermi anyways.

I'm already on 196.21, switched again, and I still have the same problem. My computer came with NVIDIA 7900- Can I upgrade (download) to 7950, or even another series or do I have stay in a particular range?

Welcome to the forum Sonic
Not sure what you mean. If you are using the 196.21 driver for your card stick with that as the latest one-196.75- is causing problems.
What problems are you having and what do you mean by "switched again"?
Also the 7900 is the card you have. The only way to upgrade that is to buy another card and put it in.
You can, however, use a variety of Geforce drivers for that card. Nvidia are constantly releasing new drivers which are usually backwards compatible with their range of different graphics cards.
The warning is for the latest Nvidia driver release.

Hope this helps, John
