Whoa, what happened to, well, anything between 101.xx, and this?

Are the drivers so massively better than the previous ones that they had to add over 50 to the driver version?

^^the most recent 7 series drivers were/are 93.71, according to nVidia's website. although you can find newer (and likely better) versions if you look around, lol.
they dont, to my knowledge, support the 8 series cards.

My score went down again, I'm using two eVGA 8800 GTX Ko's. I love them but **** I need some good drivers...

So far no crashes though! That's good. Before my monitors would just up and go black and have to reboot the pc.
