Just modded my own inf and tried these out.

No problems so far. The golf game I play, Albatross18, finally plays without the strange texture flicker during shots that has plagued me since the 156 series of drivers.

Very nice :)

Pretty awesome driver. It is the one that is working best for my Vaio FZ laptop actually. Best performance in games, best performance with Aero in Vista... Temperatures get a little bit higher than usual (up to 85º C at its peak), but it is more than worth it.

There is just one small problem. Every once in a while (could be once a week) the screen will start flickering for a few seconds while using Windows normally, and the driver will just restart. Not the computer itself, just the driver. So you can normally continue with whatever you were doing.

But besides that, this is the best of the best for me. And it allows for Blu Ray playback!
