I found that the most stable Geforce driver for my FSX is and was the 332.21WHQL. I am running it on a high tuned 4.9GHZ Win7 with an overclocked (Afterburner) Geforce MSI GTX 780TI Gaming with no issues. I tried other, newer dirvers and got problems with black screens and FSX CTDs. I know this issues are not alone related to the geforce driver but here with this system the old 332.21 is the best. Those of you who have GTX980 they need al least the 344.11 and the GTX960 minimum the 347.25. The modern drivers are very good with modern games like Assasin Creed Unity or Alien Isolation. There are real good features to enhance the optic of the game especially the DSR mode. As always our beloved FSX is a very outdated piece of software and I sometimes I wonder how some guys find workarounds to make it better and better but vendors of modern hardware do not really look after MSFSX or MSFS9 owners when they build their hardware and drivers - we have to find out what works best.

The new drivers are optimized for the 970/980 cards and cause problems for other cards. There are a few threads on this issue. I have a 560ti and rolled back to the driver below and have no issues in DX10 or fsex-se

 

9.18.13.3788

i am using 344.48  WHQL driver with a GeForce 760 PNY card. I have bufferpools=0, vsync checked in NI and fps limited to 30 inside FSX. My frames are rock steady with crystal clear textures. Of course, like everyone, they dip in scenery intensive settings, i.e. large, busy airports. But, most of my flying is with a DC3, a few single or twin bush aircraft, and once in a while something bigger.

 

Once I broke my habit of constant tweaking, everything was fine. Of course, just being on this forum might get me tweak hooked again...:-)

One of the VERY overlooked reasons for BSOD, or video driver corruption/failure, when in a flight session with the 347.x series of drivers...is overheating of the card.  If you can, increase all your fan cage speeds by at least 50 percent.  Personally, before each flight, (with any sim platform) I raise my fan RPM speeds from the nominal 15 percent to 30 on the hard drive fans, and 50 percent feeding outside-of-case air that washes over the GTX680 2GB.  This has worked like a charm...and no further BSOD (I had them too!) when in any graphically intensive (heavy cloud, etx) scene rendering.  I think it is that these latest drivers are working the carbon...and you have to keep the heat from the uppers limits or scale-down levels....

 

As far as fan noise invading my flight session (and of course there is more fan volume...) I wear headphones...so, actually do not hear either the default, or the custom that I have set up on my system...so all is good for that taxi to active....

 

My 89 cents... :)
