What is a good driver to update to that has been proven to not have issues?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm running a GTX 670 that's OC'ed to beyond 680 speeds on the 320.18 drivers with zero issues. But I figure it's time to update.

So which driver is it safe to update to? 332.21 or 327.23?

I run 2 Evga 670 GTX FTWs sli'ed and find that the 332.21 is the best of the newer drivers, they all kinda suck since they started optimizing for the GK-110(780Ti). I used the 320.49 for my 670 FTW sli forever, and found pretty much everything up to the 331.82 to suck. Try the 332.21 let me know what you think.

That's good to know, and partly the reason why I held off updating as I figured that there's nothing really left for them to change for the 600 series drivers.

I did update to 332.21 and have zero problems. The only thing is for some reason that adaptive V-sync is not working for Diablo 3, but not sure if it did that before or not.
