They are not. It is the new style for control panels in Windows Vista. They just are trying to make it fit wih Vista and let people get use to it.

WTF?? How depressing. That control panel has to be one of the least enjoyable control panel experiences of my entire life; turned it off within seconds.

Fuck Vista.
Started messing with Linux Distros 2 years ago. As of a month ago, I pretty much don't boot windows at all. I'll keep it around for gaming... but once games go "Vista Only" (Which will be a couple years after it launches)... I'm done buying PC Games. (Which is fine because I have a big enough collection, anyway)

MS can take their new over-bloated, intrusive infested (And I'm not just talking DRM), overpriced OS and shove it.

Anyway... ATI control panel is shit because of the .NET bloat... looks like nVidia is heading in the same direction.

Sad Day.

This thing looks like it's trying to compete with the ATI panel.

No, if it was meant to compete with ATI's CCC, the new nvidia control panel would be slow, unresponsive, sluggish and using tons of memory.

There is a setting in the file menu to revert to "classic panel". Change back to classic and apply coolbits you will then have the refresh rate screen again.

A simple fix for the balloon sli message
http://tinyurl.com/gfll8
which says
"Please download the the file "sliballoon.reg" located below in the File Attachments section. Once you have downloaded it to your computer, run the file to add the information to your registry. Once this has been added, you will no longer receive this message each time you boot into Windows."

how'd you get the refresh rate lock with the new-ish control panel? I used coolbits before, all I can see with these is "change resolution attributes" which doesnt seem to be working during the Prey demo, which flickers at 60hz.

edit: nvm, found ReForce.

I had a system crash and reboot using these new nvidia drivers if I ran PowerDVD 7 on WinXP. I had to downgrade to the 84.xx drivers to get it working again. And that "you have no SLI" message box is completely annoying too. I think I'll wait till another major release before I try these drivers out. Too buggy.

I'm still using the 77.77 drivers. BF2 runs like shit if I don't.

They're WHQL certified.. I think this press release means they're no longer beta.

Apparently they still have that BS bug where their silly control panel keeps telling me my [non-existant] SLI setup has been disabled because my second card was removed

This is not a good way to coerce me into going SLI, nVidia..

Shouldn't this press release mention these are BETA drivers? Or is the BETA classification on drivers a non-issue?
