    I've been using the 61.77 drivers from nVidia site and their site still mentions 61.77 as the latest version but I've seen forceware drivers upto version 70 (BETA) and Omega drivers (unofficial).
    Which one should i use?
    Here is the link -

    The Forceware 66.81 are currently the latest with WHQL certified.

    Use those unless you really want to use experimental BETA drivers.

    Thanks but why does the nVidia site still take me to 61.77 version?
    EDIT: The beta drivers link points to 66.81 drivers.

    Nvidia doesn't update their site very often.

    The first ( and arguably, most important) question you should be asking is "What is wrong with the driver pack I'm currently running?"
    Assuming that day-to-day stability is NOT an issue, why bother updating the drivers in the first place?
    Granted, if you live on the bleeding edge of performance, the extra 2-3fps might make your day, otherwise...what's the point?

    Nothing really, but I have MUST have latest version because it must be better disease :-), maybe the FPS will be more stable in some areas where it drops for a few seconds.
    And another question if I download the drivers from BETA link at nVidia, will they be the final 66.81 or the actual old BETA.
