Default Optimal mobile nvidia driver for Red Alert 3?

Is anyone familiar with a mobile nvidia driver that is best for playing Red Alert 3? I have the latest drivers from laptopvideo2go.com, but there has to be drivers that are better for this game in particular. The reason I ask is because I have a friend with the desktop version of my video card, and he gets perfect frame rates on ultra high, whereas I struggle to do so on high.

My specs are listed in my sig.


Antec 300
MSi P67A-C43
Intel Core i5-2500k
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Corsair Vengeance 8 GB (DDR3 1600) Ram
Seagate Barracuda 1TB
eVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB SC
Acer G235H 23" LCD (1920x1080)
Corsair TX750
Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit

He has the DESKTOP version of your card... it's going to be better than a laptop card... they always are and will continue to be better... here is a comparison of my laptop GPU against the desktop version. you'll never get the same frame rates from a laptop as you would the full size card, sorry to say... but it's big difference between the 2 huh?
