NVIDIA Beta Drivers

New beta version 182.05 WHQL-candidate drivers are now available for NVIDIA GeForce accelerators, offering performance improvements for several games, new OpenGL 3.0 support, and updated version 9.09.0203 PhysX software. Though a beta, these are recommended "for the best experience in F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin." There are new drivers for Windows XP, Windows XP x64, Windows Vista x86, and Windows Vista 64-bit. Thanks Mike Martinez and FiringSquad.

I'm scared to update my drivers ever since Infinity engine games started working without artifacts again! (180.48/XP)

That's exactly why I left Nvidia last fall. I had been using them since the TNT, and after 10 years, I ditched them and got an ATI card. (4870x2)

I was so pissed after a necessary driver update (I needed it to play HL2:ep2) had broke all the Infinity Engine games. I thought it was only me, but saw all the forums light up with similar problems.

It's petty, I know, but I still play those games and will not put up with having them broken for me. For me, it wasn't just artifacts though, the game locked up whenever a spell was cast. Had to downgrade my drivers to fix it.
