Im not really sure what its purpose is, i think its for playing games in 3D color.But you need 3D glasses i think.

IIRC I'm on 77.71 - I really don't see much point in updating the drivers as the latest revisions don't affect my system.

I also have RivaTuner which allows you to tweak the NVidia settings if required. In my case it's partially to force 4x AGP to stay at that setting with an 8x graphics card instead of defaulting to 2x, despite being correct in the Bios.

Thats a wierd thing Stuartli i didnt know an 8x agp card would work in a x2 mobo,i thought it was a voltage issue that they would run at x4 by default if the mobo didnt support x8.

Ta, I understand now. I don't think my graphics card - a GeForce4 Ti 4200 - supports those features so it isn't visible.

"I really don't see much point in updating the drivers as the latest revisions don't affect my system." - a wise choice. G

No, it's a 4x AGP motherboard - the step up to 8x doesn't work performance ratio wise, as is also the case with the Bios AGP aperture setting (64MB is usually the best setting).

The problem was that the setting would revert to 2x in the nVidia Control Centre and RivaTuner maintains the 4x preference (at least in my case!)

It's worth a read of this excellent guide (and the others from author Koroush Ghazi):
