but i'd go for 174.74. I have an 8600GT and its the best on I have found.

Here is the 174.74 link


remember to download driver and the modfied inf file. overwrite the original inf file in the extracted folder with the modified one

I run an ASUS laptop (VX2S) with 8600M GT, and Wook's recommended driver (174.74) did not work for me (It might for you). I then attempted the latest posted on the site (169.12) which solved my problems.

Good Luck!

You run pretty much the same system as I do, how do you overclock the GPU? I run CSS and TF2 which was not stable at all with ASUS original 32-bit dvr. Now with the 64 bit drv (169.12) through here it seems to run stable. I need to try the dvr you recommend below.

Thanks for you input, :)

Dell Vostro 1500 (laptop)

Core 2 duo T7500 2.2 GHz

2GB ram

Geforce 8600m GT

i know the 169.21 is the desktop ver. but it still works and i have not had any problems

i went to nvidia site and downloaded driver 169.21 (make sure you dl the right ver. 32 or 64 ) Extracted the files the clicked to do the setup and it failed (which is ok) then went to device manager and display adapters and found my Geforce 8600m GT and right clicked and picked Update Drivers ... Pick No, not this time - Next ... Install from a list or specific location (advanced) - Next.... Don't search, I will choose the driver to install - Next... click Have Disk ... Browse to where you extracted the 169.21 drivers... pick the nv4_disp.inf and click open...then click OK ...i then searched for the first NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT (it will not have an "m" after 8600, thats ok) it will then pop up a message saying it isn't recommended to install this driver blah blah blah Click YES and let it finish, your screen will look large but do a reboot and you should be good to go.

for Age of Conan i was getting about 17 fps now i get about 30 - 40 fps avg i play on low settings and disable a few option and it still looks good (well enough for me) i did notice that every once in a great great while it will pause for a second or 2 but very very rarley. fixed my problem and i am very happy.

Hope this helps
