    Just spotted the 43.30 driver Here at gurus site i am going to test this very soon....every driver on my system since the 41.09 has messed up medal of honor spearhead (Everything else is fine!) and seeing as this is my fave game at the moment so i will see how this one does.

    Sorry missed it on front page .....Jewelzz beat me to it.

    Also for you lazy people;) the setup program automatically removes old drivers for you.

    Feedback on these would be appreciated

    Tried them out and they did not seem right ...well not on my pc!....spearhead intro screen where the fan spins round was messed up (colours not right) and when i went to the clone tab i was missing 2 options (hori and vertical spanning) and well the tabs looked...erm ..half done.

    Did not even bother running benchmarks gone back to 41.09:confused:

    Ok well they ran allright for me .. but colors do seem a little drab as far as games go I was able to run

    Morrowind
    Max payne
    sof2
    diablo 2 lod
    tony hawk 3
    Demolition racer

    All ran fine but I prefered the 43.00 so I am going back to 43.00 and will wait for next batch

    Thanks all the same for heads up ....:)

    it may be prudent with dx9 to start using whql drivers because of the IQ issues that have been raised in various forums... :)

    hence why I said perhaps WHQL should be used... :)

    I agree ....... but I dont seem to have many troubles with this set up and I can always go back to what I had .... if my rig was not as stable as it is I would be very carefull not only with video drivers but other stuff as well


    But like I said I am addicted I just cant help it :D

    I think whoever gives it a WHQL status needs to pull their finger out !!.

    Are Nvidia lazy in giving microsoft drivers for WHQL ing....Or are Microsoft slow or refusing to WHQL drivers ?.

    to be WHQL... the product must meet certain standards...

    per the grapevine it seems the next dets that are whql may well come out around the time the nv35 is released...

    I don't mean to sound ignorant, but I am new to this forum. I do, howver own this card: PNY Verto GeForce4 Ti 4400 128MB DDR AGP Graphics card. I have a 1.6 Pentium 4, 60 Gig HD, 512 MB DDR RAM, and WinXP Home Edition. Will installing the 43.00 NVidia driver on my computer help me as far as my games and video playback? I have never installed any other drivers besdies the ones that came in teh box when I bouht the card. I play Ghost recon, Castle Wolfenstein, adn Delta Force Trilogy on my computer.

    The thing with drivers is they dont seem to act the same way for everyone ...but overall from what I have read and from my own use of the 43.00 's YES ... seems most everyone finds the 43.00 a good set of drivers ... :)


    And welcome to NTFS
