    Is that before or after people connect to the Simcity server?

    I can't believe anyone using a 690 would notice a 9 % change on Starcraft

    the tomb raider issue is not all driver related, a patch will be needed for the game itself.

    Indeed!
    However, the HotS expansion pack release is three days away. Ppl should note that this beta driver has optimisations... if they have any issues, perhaps a fix is already in the "pipe" (five by five).

    I love being platform agnostic. So much easier on the wallet that way. Whatever is the best bang for the buck.

    I don't exactly know how GPU works but why it needs driver?(question)
    why can't we just compile the program and execute the instructions on GPU(similar to CPU)

    cpu does have drivers, they're just auto installed along with Windows/Linux/whatever.

    aimee9sanchezjust as Evelyn explained I'm in shock that a person can profit $7387 in four weeks on the internet. did you read this link>>>>> http://nyan.cat

    Like everyone else on the internet I'm in shock that you think anyone would actually fall for this. Did you really think that would work?

    Meh I'm using the previous drivers for my 660 and it is working fine so I doubt I'm not going to switch. My feeling with drivers is if it isn't broke don't fix it.

    Those are generated by spam bots, they get past the captcha by using captcha farms (there are idiots who will go on those pay sites which pay you 1 tenth of a penny for each captcha you get right (not understanding that you will probably never reach the $10 minimum payout.

    Anyway more complex caphchas are no longer working because those spam companies are farming out the captcha for more or less free.

    The only effective way so far that I have seen is to have custom human verifications where it will ask something like " What is 5 plus two" This reduces the ability of the spambots to farm off all of the verifications and thus will require then to customize a spam profile for the site (which can be mitigated by changing the id's of the text fields)

    Another method (though it requires more moderators), is to have a comment approval system where after they register, their first post requires approval and if it is spam the moderator can easily ban the user, and if it is a valid comment then it is approved and then all subsequent post will be approved automatically.

    hopefully tomshardware will one day implement a more modern spam prevention system.

    FOR TOMB RAIDER
    These do not fix the crashes associated with TR. To fix them install this . Once installed change both SLI Compatibility and SLI compatibility (DX1x) setting using nvidia inspector to "0x084000F5"
