Hello, I have an Asus v7700 Geforce2 video card. The only driver Asus has is in beta. Do the nvidia drivers (23.11) direct from the nvidia site work on any geforce2 chipset or should i stick with the ones from Asus?

ya, the manufacturer specific nvidia drivers sometimes add a wee bit of performance difference, but not much since nvidia did their unified driver architecture where all drivers are pretty much the same

hence why you can use the same drivers for a geforce mx/2/3 and so on

i'm using the 23.11's w / my inno geforce2 ti ,but as far as performance goes i can't really say that they're any better than
the version you have, if you don't have any probs. w / the ones
that came w/ the card then changing them is simply a matter of
preference.

The 23.12 drivers were never released onto teh NVidia site, and have since been pulled by Asus (I think) as a serious error was found that increased the crashing loop problems.

go to www.anandtech.com,the 23.12's are there,but from what
i read they don't seem to be much different than the 23.11's.
they may or may not be buggy so if you're not having any probs w/ the stock drvs from asus then changing to the 23.11's might
not make enough of a difference to install em.

Thanks guys...

I was just asking because I had a problem with a certain game and customer support wanted me to try the lastest video driver updates. The Asus drivers did work fine by the way, no difference in performance from the ones at Asus and the 23.11s.

Thanks.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
