On places like guru3d you can usually get 2 or 3 generations newer than on nvidias website, issue is everytime iv done it some issue or other comes up cuasing my GPU to just crash or die or whatever, latest was any game after a while would randomly crash my GPU with monitor going to sleep then comming back with vista telling me the desktop has reverted to basic and the games crashed.

I dont think these drivers are worth the trouble, the only reason i was doing it is coz the next gen drivers come with the ability to use the CUDA as an emulated Agier PHYSX chip but it never seemed to work anyways, its supposed to work on an 8800GTX but mine never did, so why bother.

Imagine playing spore for 2 hours and u forgot to save and ur beta driver died :)
