Download Win 10 NVIDIA driver how to choose correct version?

Recommended Posts

I am running WIN 10 Pro and am still with the original NVIDIA GTX 580 driver that was downloaded automatically when I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10. I want to install version 368.22 which seems to work well for others based on input on this forum. Somebody said the current driver caused frame rate drops. That is an older driver though so I cannot download it using the GEOFORCE Experience and when I try do pull it up from NIVDIA manual download site there is no dropdown for Windows 10 to help choose a driver, only Windows 7, 8, 8.1. I find that hard to believe that Windows 10 is not listed on the dropdown but such as it is, which driver should I choose? 8.1 64 bit?

 

Why would they list every operating system but not Windows 10 when its been out for one year?

 

Thanks

I tend to get my drivers off Guru3D - Here's the one you are looking for; http://www.guru3d.com/files_details/geforce_368_22_whql_driver_download.html

 

Links are at the bottom. I find the very latest driver, 368.69, very smooth and stable with P3D however.

 

I also suggest you use DDU to properly clean up after the automatic driver installation. That also tends to install all the 3D junk and whatnot; http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

Dave,

 

OK now I know what the problem was. I went to the NVIDIA website and chose GEOFORCE drivers, not all NVIDIA drivers.

 

The GEOFORCE drivers link does not include Windows 1o drivers for some reason.

 

Thanks

 

Greg
