    Yep same here with the reverting to 59hz all the time plus the driver issue.
    It's a bit weird but it doesn't seem to be causing any problems to me at all but I haven't installed any games yet.

    I gave up on Nvidia drivers after my problem with the 185.60s and build 7057.
    Has anyone tried them with 7100 ?

    cheers, John:)

    Windows 7 updated my nvidia drivers to 8.15.11.8172 from 8.15.11.8171 and calls it a prerelease WDDM 1.0

    I'm wondering if this driver (offered by Windows Update) is any better than the Vista64 one (driver I'm currently using). I have the 8600M GT 512MB.

    I've got the 181.72 drivers for my 9800 GTX+, and they do the job amazingly well. I've been able to play Tomb Raider: Underworld at maxed out graphics with smooth frame rates. Only weird thing is the nvidia control panel, it doesn't save my settings above a certain setting (if I set anti aliasing above 4x, and hit apply, it changes it back to 4x after I close the window...)

    Oh! Hey, maybe the WDDM version is changed on older graphics cards with this update... it doesn't look like anyone with 9 series or higher is seeing that version change.
