Default 6600GT Drivers!?!?!

Hi

I have a 6600GT and i have the 66.93 drivers for it. I can update the drivers to the later 77.72 drivers.

I am just wondering if i should (as i can remember hearing some bad stuff about it)

Thanx

I have the new drivers for my 6600 256MB. Make sure you uninstall the old drivers before you install the new ones. That can be why you are having lagging problems.

meh i like old drivers, by the time i usually upgrade to the newer ones the problems have been fixed, nVidia should fix the problems before they put them out, idiots
