Hmm I updated, then proceeded to run a 3dMark Test as i have been some stutter problems with my 9800gt, not a good idea. My machine BSOD'ed and my video card overheated quite a lot( I could barely touch it) and I have had to replace it.

Beware

Haha, somehow i saw this coming... i today formatted my PC, and saw that new drivers where available, and decided against downloading them, and sticking to the 196.21 ones that i have an installer for on my PC.

All is well

Nobody's said that, just after however many problems ATI has had with their drivers, Nvidia's has a fault, which is the first major problem in, I think, a year now
