So far I've tried all but XP 64. I don't exactly get a 15% increase, but it does increase the fps in CoD4 by around 8-10% on the Vista 32 version. meh, good enuf for me
Also (finally) got rid of an annoying glitch in BFII.

Stalin, which driver version are you having trouble with?

Crashed like crazy for me in Vista SP1 32 Bit on a fresh install. Didnt even get to get any games installed. Within 5 minutes of logging into the system. It crashed out.

They worked nicely for me. A noticable increase in all games.

wow, I've got to say I'm impressed. I just tried crysis, bumped the settings up to 'very high' and where it used to be totally un-playable it's now not even jerky (still VERY slightly under the 'smooth' fps mark)

well now that i look back the only game ive really played since i got them was lord of the rings online. but for some reason it seems like a very driver sensitive game, i used to get blue screens cuz my sound driver wasn't up to date.
