i was led to believe its always best to have the card's manufacturers drivers installed - as these are specifically made for your os and card

so the point of nvidia's drivers are.........?

New nForce Unified Drivers

Here's a list of the changes:

WHQL certified kit for nForce and nForce2
Added nForce2 IGP support
Audio performance enhancements
SPDIF on ACI support
Adds support for audio with the ASUS A7N8X Deluxe product

Update: Just from my experience, installing the new IDE driver is a bad idea. There is an option to NOT install it, I suggest going that route. Maybe a few intrepid individuals can figure out why Windows wouldn't boot on my machine with the new IDE drivers....

Are these the new drivers or not? TC.

I was always under the impression that nVidia drivers were backward compatible with its range of chipsets.

I updated my 32MB nVidia GeForce2 MX400 card about a month ago and had all sorts of freezing and crashing problems, especially when using ICQ or having several windows open.

I eventually narrowed it down to having enabled and configured the nVidia Desktop Manager.

Disabling it cured all the problems immediately.

Thanks for that. As I don't have a nVidia card I'm not familiar with these driver updates. I do know they have caused confusion in the past, especially with their version numbers, to some users.

One of the reasons I am leaning towards ATI for my next power card. :) TC.

I think they say something about the numbers in the comments further down the page.

PSF Are you trying to upset me!! :)) TC.

Thanks PSF for that. I was joking of course! :) I think the ATI Radeon 9700 is a fine card, and it's hard to believe they can better that and keep within price constaints.

I watch this video card 'battle' between the giants very closely these days, so let's hope it proves beneficial and affordable to the consumers in the end. TC.
