Default Latest Driver 8800Gtx

Again... -8800Gtx


I'm just preparing myself for the arrival of my new rig and I'm wondering: what's the ABSOLUTELY latest driver for the 8800gtx?
I have Windows XP Pro w/ SP2 and it doesn't list it under the selections there.. They have Windows Xp Professional, but only the 64bit edition. Are they both the same?

Please help a brudder out.

Thanks


P.S. Also, what's the latest drivers for 680sli ??? Thanks and sorry for posting much too much.

I believe this is the latest for the 680i SLI chipset:

I can't see XP Pro on the list either for the 8800 series.

It isn't always the best choice to download the latest drivers, as some can cause instability in your system for various reasons. However there isn't much choice of drivers for the 8 series yet. 64Bit driver will likeley not work at all/or unstable on a 32Bit OS. I think the driver you need will be labeled Windows XP/Media Centre Edition.

No they meant, that you at least have to have SP1 installed, in order to install this driver. You have SP1 & 2, so your good.
