what happens if i install both the asus gpu tweak + drivers that came with the gtx 650 and the nvidia drivers from the nvidia site? (are they even different?) .. i tried both at different times, the nvidia drivers seem to be better .. but i miss the overclocking tool ..

Just go get MSI Afterburner to OC, and ASUS GPU Tweak is no a driver, its a program.

Uh, GPU Tweak is not a driver. You don't need to uninstall it just because you aren't using the drivers on the disc that came with the graphics card. Just simply use GPU Tweak and the drivers from Nvidia's site.

NVIDIA.... You kinda are making this more than it ought to be. I mean like maybe GPU-Tweak was installing NVIDIA drivers or something. Just go install NVIDIA's latest drivers and click on fresh install. Im like almost braindead already.

You download the latest nVidia drivers and install them - can check your current driver version by going to control panel> device manager > Dispaly Adapters > Driver and compare the version there to whats available - if a newer version is available, simply update it.............the GPU TWEAK is an application- a program that allows you to 'manage' the GPU itself, adjust voltage, freq, etc

sorry , not having trouble with the drivers .. GPU tweak , the live update panel, it was a panel for updating the drivers and vbios. says in the pdf manual of GPU tweak.

Best solution

You can go through the app (GPU Tweak), but it heads to the Asus website and to the drivers they have available - when a new driver is released by nVidia or a Beta, it may take a long time for any of the GPU manufacturers to go through and change all the links on all their different GPU to the new drivers (and to be honest they don't rush, have seen new drivers released 2-3 times in a single month before, that would keep someone busy for awhile just changing all the possible links ;)
