Default 77.73 drivers or not?

I posted before but i didnt get a straight answer. The question is simple should i download the new 77.73 drivers for my 6600Gt or keep the 66.93 drivers?

Thanx

Yeah I'm kind of wondering the same thing. The 66.93 drivers have been the best of all the drivers they have released recently in my opinion and extremely stable so I wonder too if I should switch over to the 77.73 drivers.

I have no problems with the new 77.73 drivers... but that is with 7800s.. as far as I know, the 6600GT shouldnt react much differently.

Download the drivers. You can't tell what they will do on your computer by what they are doing on someone else,s. The drivers are stable but what you have on your system is what will determine whether there will be an issue or not.

If they don't work then just roll back to the old ones.
