Nvidia has a couple of new drivers available today, one of which - 296.17 - has finally brought in official support for the upcoming Windows 8 operating system.

Designed to allow for the use of Nvidia hardware with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview released last month, it also bundles in the few minor changes from the other just released driver, the WHQL certified 296.10.

Download Here (not sure if available yet)

NOTE: This driver should not be used with Windows Vista, Windows 7, or the Windows 8 Developer Preview.
