    The newest Det. on nVidia is 3.78, and the 5.13 can be D/L'd here:

    5.13

    And it does seem to make a diff under W2K, at least;

    the 5.13s are incredible...at least for my vanilla V770. specially after i turned v-sync off.

    anyway you might want to lok at this article from Anand which explains the astounding performance gains many of us have gotten from the new drivers.

    I'm living in the dark ages and have a TNT1 with my P2 350. I showed a decrease in marks (using 3d 1999 benchmarker) but the picture quality is a lot better in games like Rogue Spear and Wheel of Time - no tearing or similar - havent noticed a major slow down, but then I am not running the same boards as you guys (and only at 800x600 as well)

    Yeah I know - time to upgrade!

    I've been using the 5.13's for a few days now on my Annihilator Pro DDR... I'm diggin' the FSAA... course I have to drop down a resolution notch or two to use it with good framerates, but with the AA it still ends up looking as good or better.

    What have you guys thought about the FSAA so far?

    I use a GeForce DDR with the 5.13 and i like them. I needed to get them to run Messiah, but have not had probs with my other games, so all is good.

    I think the FSAA kills my framerate. I would rather play at higher res that lower res with FSAA.
