Thanks. I'll be trying them out.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

Ya i have been using 84.21 for 2 days now, played NFS:MW, FlatOut, Vice City, Quake 4 demo and some other demos, and i ran 3DMARK06, all of them ran great. Havent tried BF2 yet, but i will when i get some a few free hours to play that.

You reformat your whole HD every time you install new nvidia drivers? I must have read that wrong.

I think it is a little excessive to reformat every time you install new drivers...I simply uninstall the old ones and then I install the new ones...It's that simple...
