just powered on my rig for the 1st time and am downloading the latest 97.92 forceware drivers for my 8800gtx.

other than those, are there any other nvidia downloads, updates, apps, that are highly recommended? i didn't install anything that came with the nvidia disc b/c i figured that the drivers are most current on the site.

please though, if i am overlooking any good apps, such as ones that allow oc'ing of the card, please let me know.

:D

You didn't mention OS... That version of driver is for xp 64.

yes you can overclock and monitor temps.

i use it because n-tune doesnt work on my 8800 card.
it locks up my computer for some reason?

I stand corrected. I didn't read the release notes.

you can try rivatuner as well to overclock and measure temps and to do some really advanced stuff with your card (which i wouldn't recommend unless u know what ur doing)
