    The problem is, this driver has bugs. My secondary will not work with this version. Previous one is ok.

    As for shadow play I believe thats only for 600 and higher because they have the proper video encoding hardware.

    at least it must be kepler based since they need NVENC that exist in kepler. some entry level 600 series still based on Fermi like GT630. also if i remember correctly GT640 also have Fermi and Kepler version.

    The driver install caused both my monitors to blackout (only the mouse was visible).
    One monitor is off the discrete, one off the iGPU. I had to make the iGPU monitor the main and the driver still froze on install.

    why not connect both of your monitor to your discrete gpu?

    Played around 6 hours of BF 3. Drivers work good for me. Finally something to replace the modified 314.22 drivers I was using for my GTX 780.

    Nvidia 327.23 Drivers are bugged to hell in some games, especially in DX11.
