Best drivers for SLI 460's in Windows 8 (CS:GO and BF3)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
In the past I've seen some posts recommending specific driver versions for different games and I was wondering if there is a preferred driver for SLI 460's in Windows 8 that may give me better performance than the newest drivers? The only games that I'm playing at the moment are CS:GO and Battlefield 3.

Just wanted to let you guys know I upgraded my drivers from version 314.22 to 326.19 4 days ago and I reverted back to 314.22 last night. After a minute or two of joining a BF3 server my system would completely freeze. Once I completely uninstalled 326.19 and re-installed 314.22 my issues were gone. I looked at the Windows event viewer for a hint at what the root cause of the issue was but I wasn't able to find anything helpful. Because of this and the way my system was completely freezing I thought that maybe my OC was no longer stable but further testing (reverting back to stock) showed this not to be the case.

FWIW when I installed the newer drivers I chose to install GeForce Experience that came in the bundle. Right after I installed the drivers and restarted I configured the settings to not automatically apply the NVIDIA recommended settings to ensure their settings didn't interfere with my own. I'm not sure whether or not this software was part of the issue but at this point I'm just going to stick with version 314.22.
