    Np and like I said earlier it is very smooth .... Max Payne seems smoother at 1152x864 100mhz refresh ......

    Seems ok to me too score on 3d mark can be 100 points either way after multiple testing (rebooting before running each test) 3d mark not the most accurate bench tool.

    Improved Fps in unreal and codecreatures bench.

    Well I didnt bother running £dMark.. I think it suxs, but I have noticed, faster gameplay in C&C generals, and good colour/image quality.

    I wonder when nvidia will get off its butt and release some proper WHQL drivers!!! :D

    But the 43.00 beta's rock with my Ti4600 :D

    I have a PNY Ti4600 and the 43.00 are the best yet. Nice smooth color and everything is quick...

    Microsoft has to WHQL the drivers nvida has nothing to do with it.

    Yea. I know that Krux, but unless they give M$ the drivers they cant certify them, lots of betas have been released since the 41.09s, as the review says from BonyTony's post. Nv need to tell M$ to hurry up. :)

    Hi, Anyone have a problem with battlefield1942 stopping and goin right to the desktop when using the 43.00's ?
    I like em with my ti4600 with every game. I notice a definite improvement in the way games look and launch.

    Just Battlefiels does it.. The 42.01's are smooth and stable with all my games. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else... thanks ;)

    That sucks ..... I guess you need to wait for next set .. I had all kinds of trouble with different sets ... but the 43.00 , and 42.86 were good for me ... but before that nothing but 29.50's would work properly ....
