Default What Nvidia Driver is Best?

How do I know if I have the best drivers for my card? I updated them not that long ago but is there any performance enhanced drivers that work good on a GeForce 4400 TI card?

The latest driver would be the 61.77's. Just go to http://nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp and put in your specs. It should work for your TI 4400.

Most manufacturer's dion't make enhanced drivers for nVidia cards that I know of. I always get mine straight from their website. Even my card maker's site says to get them straight from nVida!

There are plenty of custom drivers out there. Just look around.

eh just trust the drivers from nvidia....they will be the most stable...the only other thing as far as enhancement would be to get the coolbits reg so I suggest doing that if you haven't already, but I'm pretty sure you have haven't you? Didn't you say you OC'd your 4400 a little bit not too long ago or just inquired about it

Not always the case.
I got the MSI live update with my FX 5900XT and it downloaded a 'MSI' version of the nVidia 61.77 drivers.

I think it just adds D.O.T. and other small tweaks.

Is the current nvidia driver the 6.1.7.7? And also would flashing the bios help make it faster or not or is it even possible?

yeah you can flash the cards BIOS. My motherboard came with a utility that'll flash it for me in windows so I don't know what you'd use as a utility for the video cards BIOS, but I'm sure the info is out there =)
