The title pretty much explains it all. What are the best drivers to use with that particular card?

I am not one to bump but any help will be greatly appreciated. I would like to get the best suitable drivers installed as soon as possible. Does it even really make much of a difference one which drivers I use so long as they are new?

some people find specific drivers more suited for overclocking and for different games and with the sheer amount of betas that nvidia put out it is basically trial and error for each graphics card.my friend with 8600gt changes his drivers more often than he does changes his pants,for that elusive max stable oc.

Lol, that is what I figured but I do not have the time to waste trying many drivers so I was hoping someone with an 8600 might know which ones may perform best, or at least better than others. Thanks for your input though.

Amazing but I need another gig of RAM. >_<

[edit:]
What a difference updating drivers does. I justed used the latest set compared to EVGA's providing set and doubled my 3dmark03 score.

Btw, this thread is closed unless somebody knows of even better drivers.
