After having the cards for a little while, the most stable drivers so far seem to be the Crysis hotfix drivers (even in games other than Crysis)

Just so you know the 7.12 drivers are basically the "official" crysis hotfix drivers.

I'm using these ones, not 7.12

I tried 7.12, and there were still a few glitches in Crysis.
One specifically, is if I'm outside a room looking into it, and there's a light on inside it, it will flicker.

But it doesn't happen with the drivers I linked above.

Also, at a LAN I was at for a few days (Wednesday to today), one of the people there was using a 3850 512MB (Asus)
Some of his games crashed with 7.12 drivers (one was C&C3), but were fine with the crysis hotfix drivers.
