Default best nvidia driver

hey guys
my bfg 7900gs will be arriving tomorrow.
Im trying to find out which nvidia driver out now is the best and the most efficient.

The current and latest one on the website is the 94.24.

From what all you guys have experienced, which one do you suppose works the best and most efficiently.

Nice one, Apok. If I still had my 7800GTX installed I'd try it. A lot less bloated than the standard drivers.

ONE more questions.
For installing the drivers for the first time for my new card, do i have to use the cd? or can i just install the drivers from the link provided?
what difference does either one make?

Just install the ones from the link. You don't have to use the drivers on the CD.

The one in the link is a tweaked driver, made to increase performance and image quality.
As Trotter said, it's less bloated.

leave it alone, just stop the programs loading in msconfig.
