    Shit, I hope not. It's a buggy driver

    There's a bug that cranks the clocks to full 3D when using HWA in browsers with the 280.xxx drivers
    From what I've been seeing around the interwebs, doesn't' look like they've fixed any of those bugs they introduced in 280.19 in these 280.26's.

    Yeah. It feels a little too similar to Catalyst quality

    They are good for Optimus systems - our NVIDIA cards are rarely spun up anyways.

    Indeed, that's why I wasn't sure if this was the correct place for this. A Guy

    I've returned to the 270.61, the 275.33 and the new 280.26 are both buggy for me. I get improperly rendered colors in Corel and Adobe CS5 along with a yellowish background in Windows pic viewer.

    I'm still sticking with 270.61 and will update when they resolve all the bugs.

    The only issue I've had are Broken Images in FF5, had to change some settings to force it to load broken images.
