Well, the title pretty much says it all. Im wondering which is the Latest version of nVidias display drivers for XP that are supported by RivaTuner 2.24c which is ATM the latest RT release. I tried with nVidia display driver 196.21 first but it dosent seem to work properly.

I haven't tried out Riva 2.24 yet, but did read an article about NV driver 196.21 restricting OCing. You may want to try driver 190.38, this is the first driver I've tried that would match the performance of 177.79 and I tested at least a half dozen in-between.

PS: whenever changing drivers always monitor temps and fan speed ( installed driver 178.24 and the GPU fan wasn't spinning)

Expreview is drawing some wild conclusion that its related to Nvidia’s impeding launch of Fermi based cards and as such they want to prevent the cards from being overclocked.


Complete shite!, here are the fixed drivers.

Check my link, I don't think there was any 'OC protecting' going on the drivers were simply borked which happens but I'm using the new 196.34's and the ability to OC is working fine now all the sliders are back where they used to be.

MouseMonkey gave you a pretty good list to choose from at Guru3D, they even have a better list to choose from than the Nvidia site. You may want to try 3 or 4 different versions. Each one is going to get different results, some won't OC as well as others. Try to find one that matches up best to your hardware. Run a couple of graphic intensive bench tests. Test a couple of your favorite games, watching closely in game play for dropped frames and low frame count (something I've encountered in the past).
