    Ya. I have a GTX 295. I was getting like 40fps on high. Updated to this driver and now I'm at 100fps. It's a must have If you run SLI.

      This driver update allows me to get a solid 40fps on my old 8800GTX with peaks up to 70fps.

      Now if only my dang right mouse button hadn't failed last night. I couldn't scope in on anything to save my life.

        Update: http://starcraft.incgamers.com/blog/...-graphic-cards

        Apparently these drivers are causing major problems on some games, mainly by boosting the processing and power on the card itself (to get better performance like overclocking), but thus damaging the card or worse. Nvidia has removed these drivers and are working on a new version.
