the latest driver is the nvidia 175.16. I am using it without any problems with an 8800GT, 512 megs of ram. use the windows add and remove program to remove your current driver. reboot into safe mode and then install the 175.16 driver. I know nvidia gives you an option to simply install over your existing driver, but the consensus seems to be that it is best to remove all traces of your previous driver first.you will not need to uninstall and reinstall nhancer. it will recognize the new driver.sherm

This is just a note of "thanks" for the info on going back to the 175.16 driver, do to the latest not giving a better performance!!.........I was having problems getting a good scene and thought it was something I had done.......once I removed the newest one, used the free drivercleaner Pro, and put in the previous one, my scenery is great!!
