What Nvidia driver to use?

Recommended Posts

I just assembled a new PC with

the following hardware:

 

Asus Z-97-) Motherboard

Intel I7 4790 4.0Ghz CPU

16GB DDR3 Ram

 

and off course SSD, PSu etc

 

Using WIndows 7 Home edition US

 

Is the latest driver from Nvidia (347.52) always the best solution or is an older driver more "stable" for FSX (and X_Plane)

 

Which one do you guys use/recommend and why?

Jorn,

          I just got a new machine built to use for FSX and I see that you and I share the same CPU, MOBO, GPU and RAM.  I am a "student level" person on this driver stuff and wished someone had responded to your question, cause I have the same question too.  I have the same driver as you, but working to try to get FS9 looking good (just installed it last night) first then I will install FSX.  I wonder if that driver will work good on FS9 but not on FSX, or vice versa?

 

As I mentioned, I am a "student" at GPU and drivers at best.  Right now I am just trying to figure out why my default C-172 on FS9 panel is stretched a bit horizontal.  My ASUS 24 inch monitor is at 1920x1080, same for FS9 resolution, and all looks fairly well except for the panel, instuments look like horizontal ovals, but the VC panel looks ok. Have not tweeked anything else yet.

Use the latest drivers. They're just fine.

 

jeffer_1: The 2D panels get stretched because they were made for 4:3 aspect ratio monitors while you have a 16:9 one.

I'm afraid not unless someone is willing to make, or already has made, replacement panels to cater for wider displays. I don't know but it might be worth having a look at the Avsim file library.

I only saw one for the Default C-172.

 

Update:  Found one for the default 737-400 and 747-400 and Beech Baron.  That should do.
