the 169.25 driver is vista only. XP's highest beta driver is 169.21. And at the moment they are whql "candidates", not actually verified yet.

being #1 isnt even my concern. It just annoys me that i cant hit 20k. I actually go DOWN in score by overclocking past 3.8ghz. I dont get it.

lower scores after getting getting a higher oc usually means it isnt stable.

Heh well i just ordered 2 GTS 512's. I hate myself for it but considering the way EVGA's stepup works i'm better off selling my gt cards at a profit while they're stil in demand and stepping up a GTS when the 9x cards come out. If i cant hit 20k with SLI GTS 512's i'm going to have to kill someone.

Hopefully after that your frustration goes away.
