    I haven't really used my monitor for a while, so it may have had poor IQ whereas the TV didn't - don't know

    Performance seems to be a tad better in Skyrim, so one trade off for another I guess.

    I'll be installing this right now (downloading as i write here), just reading the full changelog and it solves basically every single problem i've had until now:

    1) NFS: The Run - sometimes you'll see the screen flickers when the sun is right there in your face.
    2) TDR: apparently this driver fixes some of the issues that we (owners of GTX 500 series) are having

    We'll have to see.. i'll test and report back :)
