Crysis seems more fluid now too. Not too sure about the PhysX features since I don't have any games that would benefit from them, but they seem like pretty decent drivers.
Modding the inf is easy people, open nv4_disp.inf in notepad and search for all instances of DEV_0612 and replace them with your device ID (8800GT = DEV_0611). At the end of the inf file there is a localizable strings section which you must modify the device ID and the name of the card or else it'll show up as a 9800 GTX in your control panel.
Crysis got messed with 177.xx drivers for me. Any reason why? I get like 10 fps on MEDIUM with my settings. I used to do some very high settings with dx10 and AA and get 30-40fps...
