I use exactly the same card (twinview version) together with a 64MB Ge Force 2 100/200 - the 32MB is the better card by the way - over three monitors.I use Windows XP but I've had no real issues with the new 40.41s, other than the odd crash with DirectX problems that I haven't sorted yet. Before that I was running the 30.82s. I don't see the performance advantage they promised, but it certainly all looks sharp enough. Are you sure you've set it all up properly - or rather, have you tweaked it so much from the Nvidia defaults that now it's all topsy turvy?I'll leave it the experts, however, to talk about benchmarking and all that stuff. I'm too busy trying to fly.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitak.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/reds.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitakv3.jpg

Want another view from the world's greatest amateur?You're better not messing about with all this stuff about removing existing drivers, starting with a VGA driver, then installing the new one, etc. etc. One, it takes forever; two, it offers many opportunities to stuff up or to allow the system to hang somewhere mid-install; but three, and most importantly to me, it negates the whole beauty of being able to 'roll back' drivers under Windows. In other words, if you don't like your new driver and you want to roll back, you end up with a VGA driver installed again! Yuk.No, there's only one way for me now and to date it's worked (and saved me hours of fiddling about and tearing my hair out, as I used to). Just install the new drivers straight over the top of the previous ones, using the Nvidia install facility. Bingo! Mark "Dark Moment" BeaumontP.S. However, I've never used ME, so I don't know what peculiarities your operating system may have.http://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitak.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/reds.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitakv3.jpg

My vote: the 12.41 drivers.. work best on my 32 Meg Geforce 2MX card with Win98SE.

I'd vote for the 12.41's also. There is nothing in the later releases that will help a GF2 and the 12.41's are faster and more stable than any of the early drivers. I've tested everything up through 29.42 on a GF2 and I still think the 12.41's are the best bet.TripNorthwood 2.2a at 2.72Ghz Abit TH7II-R512MB Samsung 40ns PC800Gainward 64MB GF4 Ti4200 300/57040.41's DX8.1 WinXP ProInwin case / Enermax 431W PSU3DMark2001SE = 13089http://service.madonion.com/compare?2k1=4330740
