    I have an older evga 8800Gt. Should I download the latest driver off of their site or the latest off of nvidias?

    btw evga's is 178.13

    nvidias is 180.48.

    get the nvidia one unless the evga driver comes with some special tools you'd miss, which it probably doesn't.

    I have an eVGA 8800GTS512 and I've always gotten my drivers from nvidia

    i always only use nvidia drivers, but i wait for benchmark reviews to see if it actually performs better.

    during the spring/summer, a release was slower than it's predecessor, so i waited.
