169.25 did well for me when I first got my 8800GTs. But to be honest, I really don't play anything intensive enough to notice any difference in 2 FPS. Granted, I remember xtremeg's 174.74 drivers gave me like an extra 15 fps in Crysis. (It was unstable, but awesome while it lasted)

Ok well before that i used 174.74 forceware. Those worked fine.

I use 169.44 with my GT's and they are great. Haven't tried the new ones that hit yesterday yet though.

Oh and uh... Pretty much any driver from the 175.XX series screws me up with about a 5 FPS loss... I dunno what the hell is the problem, all I know is everything runs good on the 169.XX series.

omega drivers have good ati drivers, but nvidias are no that great

try the tweakforce drivers from www.tweakforce.com

from what i read around, 169.25 are the best old drivers, and 174.74 are the best 17*.**
