Im trying to post a score for 3DMark with my new machine running twin GTX 260s. I got the drivers off of Nvs site, but theyre not valid so that i can get a score! Anyone have this problem?

182.08 Drivers? I use them and submit scores fine...it just won't allow you to be on the hall of fame for 3DMark with Physx drivers I believe, but I don't care. It's future marks problem for not updating it often enough to support new drivers.

Yeah, i got it now...its whenever you modify the presets (to make the test go under "custom") to get a score, you have to leave the presets at all the settings defined. Yeah but the other thing is when you analyze your marks, you get that annoying message about driver is not signed or something like that so yeah, cant be posted in Hall of Fame. I mean not that its hall of fame worthy....but damn can't a brother get a break?


Thanks for the comments about the rig though. 3xSLI is up now.

You just need to disable Physx and it will accept your score properly, with Physx enabled it offloads the work from the first or second CPU test (cant remember which) onto your GPU
