Hey guys. Installed my gtx 780 SC ACX the other day and chose to download the drivers from the EVGA site. Now i'm thinking perhaps I should have used the accompanying disc that came with it first and then updated? Wondered if there may be EVGA SC stuff on the disc that isn't on the web downloads?

Not sure as i'm new to all this so help would be appreciated. It's just that I don't see GPU Boost 2.0 anywhere, which got me thinking i boo boo'd.

Disc is only for places with lack of internet or under special circumstances.

Always get the latest driver if you can, it will offer better performance and better reliability.

GPU boost 2.0 is running all the time, you can't see it because you need something to monitor your GPU with, like EVGA Precision X, there you can check the wonders of GPU boost 2.0 and tweak it however you want.

Always download the latest, here's the latest stable version for GTX 780: http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/63458
If you wanna use or tweak the GPU 2.0 feature or overclock the GPU download this too:http://www.evga.com/precision/ :)
