    Thanks to LordofLA on IRC for letting me know that NVIDIA have released a new set of WHQL drivers for your downloading pleasure. The drivers are for GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 100, and 200-series desktop GPUs and ION GPUs.

    So far, feedback suggests that these drivers are pretty good.

    Re: Geforce/ion driver release 190

    just saw it at guru3D.. seems to be a good set (only tested with tf2 so far tho)

    hehe, btw.. just realized that not only its not necessary to uninstall previous drivers anymore, but u dont even need to reboot after installing :D so cool! (yes, bring on the "welcome to 2006" cmts xD)

    thats normal. by using GPU physics you are taking processing power away from 3d processing.
