Download the most recent driver.. A lot of people will tell you 3rd party drivers are "so much better", but I run the stock drivers for all of my gfx cards. My stuff runs great. I have used 3rd party, and most of them stink. Download the current nvidia drivers.. then DL coolbits to OC your gfx card.

The best driver for that card is actually not the newest. Its the:

Xtreme G 71.20c

I had that card and trust me, the above driver is the best for performance. Although I had to switch back to it temporarily and I used the 81.95 Forcewares and with my cpu at 4.1ghz it ran CSS at 1024x768 on High texture and model detail just fine with about 70 FPS average.
