Best driver for 8800 in XP?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm new to nVidia, I've done some google searching and have heard 97.92 or 100.82.

Any advice? What the hell do the version numbers mean?

ATI's driver model is soooooo much better. The higher the number the new er the driver, and one driver install file covered every vid card back to the 8500 series.
