Vista Drivers

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What drivers should I get for Vista? (Reformatting) Should I get graphics card drivers or stay with the ones that vista comes preinstalled with? How about other things? Also, what are some good temp monitoring programs for vista? Nothing works for me

get the drivers from the Nvidia website. They will be much better than the default vista ones.

as for temp monitors, it's a common problem for them not to work. You will probably have to wait till vista is officially out before they'll have vista support.

Edit: as a general rule, the official drivers from the company that makes the device will preform better than the default OS drivers. The exception is when you have to install software with the drivers- the performance gain you might get from having the better drivers might not be worth it (the software will slow down your computer.)

but for the graphics card, definitely get the Nvidia drivers

Yes, the RC2 drivers should work fine. you should still definitely use them. Even though default vista rtm default drivers may be newer, they still suck.

The Most Importan drivers you wish to Consider are.

1. IDE/SATA controller drivers.
2. Motherboard/Chipset drivers
3. G-card Drivers.
4. Sound Drivers
