Just to offer a divergent voice:

I just built the system in January so I've only used 266.58. What I've found is that my 8800GT is freezing after some random period (anywhere 10m - 2hr) in WoW and also in the Rift beta, requiring a hard reset whenever it happens. I used the card in a previous system under XP and never had a problem, nor have I gotten it to act up outside of a game, so I don't think it's hardware.

Again I haven't used any driver other than 266.58 so I can't specifically say it's at fault, but I wanted to mention it in case someone else experiences issues.

Hi Amarsir and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

I haven't had any problems with that driver, but you might like to try the latest Beta 267.24 to see if that addresses your issue. I'm currently using that driver, and have had no issues with it.
