Default Which Nvidia Driver?

What's the best version of the NVidia Driver? I heard some people saying the newest one has bugs and makes their game crash a lot. I don't know how true this is, but which version is best? I have a XFX GeForce 6600GT.

well, how are you doing with your 77.72 driver? is there any difference between the 77.72 or 66.93?

also, how do you know the 66.93 is better? and in what way is it better?
