Best driver for 8800 GTS 512 on XP ???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been running my new gaming computer using 64 bit vista, everyone was saysing I get better 3dmark scores and performance if I have the same system XP So I finally bought a second 500 GB HD with XP so now I can boot both.

But in my first run of 3dmark06 my scores are not any better I am using EVGA 780I with 9.64 drivers and the latest Xp video driver for this card 175.16 ( I had atleast one error message in first run nv4_disp driver stop responding) I have only had some time trying the vista drivers and found the newest ones were not always the best performance wise.

So I like to know what some have found to be the best performance and stable driver for these cards using 32 bit XP

I've used most of them up until this last "official" release and I have to say the 169.21 worked the best. No crashes or bugs it seems.

I was using 169.21 but recently switched to 169.44 and didn't notice any real difference, both work very well for 8 series.
