Wow, I had to do some quick checking to see what version I'm running. It's 196.21, so thats a relief. I'm currently on my third 220 GT. The first one was dead right out of the box. The replacement for that one started showing artifacts during game play and I could hear the fan buzzing. After reading this thread I figured I better make sure I'm not running the latest but not so greatest drivers. Having a third card fail would be a major bummer. I never run the drivers on the CD and always download the latest from the manufacturers web site.
