    The 81.85 ForceWare drivers are out. Get 'em while they're hot.

    Re: New nVIDIA drivers.

    Let me just add that the proper procedure to install a new video driver should be:

    1. Uninstall the old driver from add/remove program
    2. reboot to safe mode and run a driver cleaner like Driver Cleaner Pro
    3. reboot back to regular mode then install the new driver

      In the past I just removed/uninstalled the old driver, rebooted and then installed the new one. Do I really have to go through the extra reboot to run Driver Cleaner?
      Has someone tried it without DC?

        I've uninstalled previous drivers without DC, then installed the new one, without any problems.

          It all depends on your faith in the uninstaller program. If you feel it does a good enough job then that's fine too. I was taught to do it this way and that's the way I do it.

              Where do you see the drivers specifically tweaked for BF2?

                Wow! A new icon and a spiffy new name! Could this get any better? (I'm assuming that the guys thought V2 as in rocket, rather than bomb, but either way it didn't blow up for me). The new name is mostly cosmetic - it basically means that the new Battlefield 2 tweaks of recent drivers are in there... Performance is comparable to the stock version of the driver. However, this driver really pushes the image quality. There's a massive improvement, particularly in FarCry, which now looks mindblowing with HDR on.

                Nice work guys!
