I heard the newest 195 is pretty good, if not 186 is known to increase FPS better than 191 etc...

doubt you CPU is bottlenecking too much if at all though, overclock them both and you still have a decent system

Not all versions of 182.xx.

I had problems with my 9800gtx with 182.22 causing system and video card crashes.

EDIT:.... My bad. I read your post, and must be blind... I somehow saw 182.

In my testing I found that the 186's bottleneck slightly less than the 190's and up. At least, that was the case in Crysis. Note this does not mean that the FPS will always be higher on the 186's, it just means they are slightly less sensitive to changes in cpu-speed. In Crysis.

They're tweaked for better performance or stability, and sometimes add a few features to the Control Panel.

I fully support the Xtreme-G drivers, I've always had great success with them.

Either that or the 186.16 drivers.
