DFI LanParty nF4 - driver?

Recommended Posts

Guest Berrern

Hi.

 

I'm going to perform a format of my system tonight, and have a query about drivers.

 

I have a DFI LanParty UT nF4 SLI-DR motherboard, and I noticed that on the DFI homepage, the latest nF4 driver they have is v. 6.66, from 23rd of November 2005. Seeing as they are very old, I had a look at nVidia's homepage, and found that they have v. 6.86 of the nF4 drivers available there.

 

My question is - which driver should I go with? Are the nVidia drivers better, because they are newer - or are the DFI drivers better (I'm thinkinig that maybe they are somehow optimized for the DFI motherboard)?

 

Can someone give any advice?

 

Thanks!

either one will work, but the newer versions are better on the IDE front (i don't use the NW SW ide drivers, but use the stock Micro$oft ones).....

 

go with the newer one...

 

laterzzzz.....

The drivers provided by DFI are actually published by nVidia; the motherboard manufacturer driver pages often aren't as up to date as the chipset makers drivers.

There is no optimization for the brand of motherboard. Only the chipset, in your case the Nforce 4.

 

What OS will you be using. If its Vista then I would use the most recent drivers, if its any other OS I don't think it would have much if any impact on performance, being such an old chipset the drivers are quite mature at this point.
