Which drivers should I use (Gigabyte or nvidia)?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I noticed on nVidia's website that they have a newer version of the nForce3 chipset drivers than Gigabyte does.

Gigabyte has chipset driver version 510. Nvidia has version 511, but I noticed that both of the chipset drivers have the audio driver included. But realtek has thier own audio driver. I don't know which ones to use. Should I stick with Gigabyte's drivers of nvidia's? And should I download the audio driver directly from Realtek?

Nvidia also have their own nforce audio drivers...newer than the one included with thier chipset driver. Why is there so many versions of this Ac97 driver!?

Thanks. I just found during the past hour or so that there is a big difference beween the Realtek audio codec and the nVIDIA audio codec. See this site for the explaination:

The Realtek has better sound quality, but the nVIDIA has EAX support.
