The Nvidia download site says for my system to DL 169.25, where the EVGA website says to DL 169.32 Then there is the new 174.12 anyone know which is best esp. for OCing

I was just wondering the same thing myself. I would think that 174.12 would be best, since it is specifically for Vista x64. I guess it would be the optimal driver for the card, since Nvidia makes the GPU, and EVGA takes that and makes the card.
