8800GT - latest Nvidia Driver? (Confused)

OK, so I have read on some post about people updating their Nvidia Driver to ForceWare 169.09...but when I go to the Nvidia site to see their latest driver for 8800GT for Windows XP...it says it is ForceWare 169.02

http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_169.02.html (Released Oct. 31th)

Am I missing something? Where are these people getting their drivers from? And is it an official, hacked, or beta version?

PS: I am just interested in having the latest official driver - not beta version. Which I believe I have (169.02)..but just want to be sure that it is. So far I have experienced no problems with ForceWare 169.02 and it has been working great.

  1. 169.09 is a beta driver so if you dont want beta stay with what youve got.

    To be honest Ive got the beta drivers on one of my two gaming rigs at home, and It could be coincidence but I dont think its running as well as it was with the previous final drivers. Wont be able to confirm that though till I reinstall the previous drivers.
