ForceWare 81.87 Drivers?

Recommended Posts

Completely up to you. If you're having problems, then maybe this will help. Sometimes (rarely) an updated driver can help performance, so test both and decide for yourself.

I tried 81.87 and my 3DMark05 score went from ~5850 to something less than 5200. Reloaded 81.85 and score went back where it was.

I cannot install 81.85s on my system for some reason, a fresh install of WinXPSP2 didn't help, it just wouldn't install. I would get half way and the screen would go black and the monitor would go idle and never come back on. I installed the 81.87s with no problem.

I little different issue but kinda similar. I only have a single display and this was during the install, not after a reboot.
