Default 7600GT Drivers, [main question] ForceWare?

http://www.nvidia.com/page/forceware_geforce.html


What is the forceware that I should get for home gaming?

Also, Ive been hearing things here and there (even a thread on it now) about driver problems, so what release is the one to get for optimal performance?

I put 91.33 on my boys 7600GT and it is running just fine apparently, if I could get him off WoW long enough to run some benchies I'd tell you the results, as it is, I think I'll have to break his fingers to get him off.

91.33 Beta link

EDIT: I do see mention of the "black box bug" in CS, he doesn't don't play it so i can't comment.

You could go with 91.31, then upgrade to 91.33 at a later time.. http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_91.31.html

Put out June 23rd, not that old at all. Also I notice 91.33 is still a beta so..

Forceware is the generic title for nVidia drivers the same as Catalyst is the generic title for ATi drivers.

Even 91.31 Drivers work with Ti 4200, at Ti 4800!
