Going to try 266.58 and see if there's any change.

Just for the sake of logic I'll try out MSI's drivers too.
Draw Distance

I'll see if it does it on mine

Had excellent progress the past hour.

For each installation I uninstalled, then I did a safe mode reboot and used driver sweeper to remove remnants. I am actually in a good position to do the test since Windows 7 didn't have a driver that it could force install since this card is so new. It simply installed a standard vga driver after a few seconds, so no old remnants of Nvidia software occurred.

Anyways,

266.58 WHQL drivers directly from Nvidia wouldn't recognize this card.

The drivers off the MSI cd were 267.50

Not only did they work, but the draw distance issue appeared to occur significantly less, on top of that, my Borderlands performance skyrocketed back up. On the 9600GT going from 266.58 to 270.61 I took a minor hit.
It did appear that in some games I got a slight performance boost, but this could be just due to that I know I'm using different drivers, but the increase in Borderlands was very apparent.

In the notes for 270.61 it even states that release enables new 560's to function.

So it's more than evident that it's a driver issue since the card's so new.

I'm thinking of sticking with the MSI drivers until new drivers appear.

266.58 works best for me
As it goes, I'm putting them back on
