Gigabyte GA-MA790x UD4 SLI New Hacked Drivers?

I have a Gigabyte GA-MA790x UD4 board that I've been running 2 PNY 9800 GT cards in via hacked SLI. I used the link here:

To set things up. Everything worked fine except for a bit of flickering during some games. I was using Nvidia driver version 190.62 hacked from the site.

The past few games I've tried to play (like Metro 2033) have stated they want newer drivers than I currently have installed. I tried installing the newest driver from Nvidia (version 196.21), but when I do that I lose the option for SLI in the Nvidia Control Panel. Does anyone know of a place that I can get more up to date drivers that have been fixed so that I can run SLI on my motherboard?

Sorry I forgot to mention I'm using Windows 7 64bit.

Aren't the links above that you posted just the 197.xx series delivered drivers? Is there something new in those that will support my cards in a hacked Crossfire environment that the 196.xx didn't?

Sorry mate, somehow I missed the hacked part. Those are all just the normal drivers for Sli boards, I don't know where you would get the hacked ones from.

Thanks. I'll try them just in case. I'm not sure what changes have to be made in order to get the drivers to recognize two cards attached via Crossfire sockets. The hunt continues.
