Nvidia Newbie Question - What are the best Drivers ?

Recommended Posts

Hi ThereI've just moved over to Nvidia from ATI with the purchase of an Nvidia OEM 8800GTX.However, assuming that the drivers that come packaged will be obsolete, i thought i'd have a look on here to find out what drivers you guys are currently using. Big mistake !!! there seems to be a lot of debate (and potential pitfalls) with what seems like all the driver versions.For someone like me who initially just wants to get the new card up and running with the minimum of fuss (and will fine tune later) could anyone please recommend which drivers i should use as a starting point for FS9.1 running under XP Pro SP2.Many thanksGary

GaryI have found that the official nvidia 175.16 WHQL drivers to be quite good for the GF88xx series of cards for FS9 and FSX. You can experiment with beta and optimised drivers but the official drivers still seem to be the best bet. Don't forget to fully uninstall the old driver before you install the new one. Go to guru3d for advice on this.RegardsPeter Hayes
