Sorry I didn't see this before - bloke, those 185.2 drivers are pretty much the only stable drivers I have found in W7 - be sure to extract them to a directory, and then extract the newest drivers as well, and then copy over the PhysX installer from the newest official release into the Beta 185.2 release - then you get the latest PhysX driver along with the 185.20 drivers.

Oh, and for what it's worth, the nForce 20.08 drivers are actually supposed to be for the nForce mobile motherboards, but the basic drivers that they install that apply to desktop boards are the same versions as those included in the 15.23 - the exception being that the 20.08 also includes the drivers for the GPU as well, which I always disable.

Which leads me to think - you didn't accidentally allow those GPU drivers to be installed, did you? If so, use Guru3D - Driver Sweeper to clean your machine and then install *only* the 20.08 drivers that are not GPU related and the 182.08 or 185.2 drivers for your GPUs.

You can check my specs to see my hardware - your system is better in terms of components but otherwise pretty close to mine, so I think the nVidia chipsets and W7 don't play nicely - and this is *especially* true with the default W7 drivers - none of my hardware components are using the native drivers except HDs and Optical Drives and ACPI.

yeh i checked the files afterwards and they are just about the same as the 15.23, i was hoping they finally made a new driver as nvidia dont seem to do anything with chipsets for some reason

Like you, i never install a default (or supplied) driver, i always go directly to the web for the latest. the only thing i let update install is the hdtv tuner drivers for compatibility reasons.

we are very similar in specs, but one of your 260's would slap one of my gx2 around. did you have to remove your sli bridge for games to run?

off topic, your mx revolution, is your battery holding charge properly? i done a little trick to regain the charge in mine and its gone from a couple days use to just over a full week. also if you put a tiny dab of grease on the spin wheels legs it spins almost like new again. i stripped mine down and cleaned it out.
