I find that very strange considering your 4th GPU sits and twiddles its thumbs, and only adds about 5% extra to your overall performance because SLI scales poorly. I believe the 3rd GPU is like 20%

You have to place it in C:\\NVIDIA\\Win2k\\177.39

When you install it make sure the installer doesn't override the modded .inf file.

The performance in GRID with these is trash...

Menu's are laggy.... Just played two events which were stuttering....

Back to the 175.16's for me.

not in vantage it doesn't, quad SLI scales extremely well in vantage, and even better now. Part of the reason SLI does't scale very well, is because the CPU can't keep up.

So it seems like these drivers DirectX10 support leave something to be desired.

Oh. Well, I said that because it seems like the only game having problems are DX10 games...

Wow. So sad. So the 8800GTX will never have PhysX working?

They claim they'll have it out for us in July.

Not in a hurry, it's not like it's any use.. So few games currently supporting hardware accelerated physics, and if you have only one card it'll just make your game choppy.
