nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX - drivers

  ZootHornRollo 22:53 25 Mar 2007

I have encountered a problem with the card - it won't play the game STALKER. I have not updated the drivers since buying my PC in January - Vista shows them as version
NVidia's site lists several newer ones available - has anyone tried them and which should I go for - it lists US English and international (ie UK English presumably) versions but I have no idea which to go for?

is there any way of getting automatic updates for drivers?

Not that I know off but maybe others will help. I would like to get this game, will it run on my system?

The game manufacturer (THQ) suggested I download the beta driver from nvidia - version 101.41 . I did that and installed it but my PC then refused to start at all and I had to use system restore to go back to the original driver.
I did not uninstall the original drivers (as it said I should)as it warned that this would lead to the permanent removal of drivers / registry info etc. and I did not want to risk this. Would system restore overcome this? I am very reluctant to do something that could be irrevocable - HELP!!

Stuartli - where did you see this new driver? The nvidia website is still showing the 100.65 as the latest. Can you provide a link? Thanks
