Hello,"Automatically installs the new PhysX System Software version 9.09.0203"I wonder if the 6 and 7 series support PhysX?I tried the 182.06 and after installation a popup told me that the sofware was incompatible with my hardware ...I run a 6 and 7 serie.Thanks

Geforce cards prior to the 8 series do not support Physx, because they do not support CUDA.

I have been running now for a day or so and they are better than the 08's. I had CTD's occasionally, but none since installing these. They seem to be a little more stable. Still get some stutters though.Bob

I'm using the 180.48 drivers for my GeForce 9800 GTX --- should I upgrade to these Beta drivers?Anyone experience notable performance gains for FSX with these compared to "acclaimed" 180.48?-Da
