Default Best recent nVidia driver?

Well right now I have 93.71 and my Aquamark score is about 30k less than what it used to be for some reason. It used to be 100k+ now it is 70-80k. What is everybody using for their drivers for nVidia cards?

Edit: Sig below is false.

I have:
AMD Opteron 165 @ 2.6ghz
g.Skill DDR600 TCCD 1gb (2x512mb) ram
FSP Group Epsilon 600XN psu (for sli)
eVGA 7800gt (with copper heatsink) custom oc
DFI Lanparty Expert SLI
Thermaltake Big Typhoon Heatsink
Other stuff.

Ive been using 93.71 for a long time now, not had any problems at all.

I play top games like Battlefield 2142, fear at highest settings so ive no reason to change forceware.

I wouldnt change to older ones just to suit benchmark scores, bench marks are ego boosters

i know on my 6600GT 92.91 was by far the best driver set i used. i don't know how that would translate to a 7800GT but it's the best info i can offer.

93.71 is crap-o-la
i think there is a 93.73? beta driver that supposedly works well.
i use this one:

and it works perfectly. as in better than 93.71.
