Well I think the folks at Nvidia are well aware of the trouble and mayhem the last couple of versions had so let's hope that's it for the problems.

I don't think it's really worth upgrading drivers for the older range of cards anyway, I've not actually seen much of any improvement with my 8800GTS cards since the 182.xx range.. Most of the time, newer drivers are just to support new GPU features.

That is my line of thinking, too. And if it ain't broke...

Nice finally a driver that is better then 196.21. Of all my games I think Just Cause 2 benefited the best with a very noticeable performance gain.
