Have you guys noticed any significant "performance" boost or any of the so called faster transfer speeds from networks files etc? just seems to me that this service pack hasn't solved much...

Yes, faster network transfer speed and a slight improvement in boot and close down.

Read/write times on large files has improved IMO.

surely bootup and shut down etc and network transfer speed is mearly a little patch, is there any indications when say the nvidia driver error will be resolved or any of the main issues which should be worked on?

Which Nvidia driver error? If you mean NVidia's slowness to build drivers for Vista then it's nVidia you should be asking.

Which "main issues"?

As far as I'm aware SP1 is mainly a combination of previously released updates with a few performance improvements (this is why the version on Windows Update is so much smaller than the full download).

Can you elaborate on the 'nvidia error' and 'main issues'?

Incompatible Creative sound card drivers which prevent SP1 from being downloaded from Windows Update or mess up you PC if you attempt to install the large SP1.

I have no problems with any nVidia drivers or hardware.
