I have said it before and it looks like I am about to say it again, there are no best drivers. each driver may be best for a particular purpose but there is rarely a driver that offers the best of every situation. So what are you looking to do, play games (as I would imagine), or watch movies?

Well as suggested by coolcop try 178.26 or 178.13 as I believe they are less problematic in some circumstances than the 180.43 but if you have the time try them for yourself and see. Experimentation is the key to getting the most out of your drivers so I say try them all, but start with 178.26 (They are the most stable in all circumstances).

Congrats, your 9700M GTS is the first one I have noticed someone to use. We were very interested of some benchmark figures :)

As the default mode is 1280x1024 it's a little difficult to compare but as 1440x900 is a couple of % less they are near.

I expected a little more from 9700M GTS - as my much less powerful 1600M does about 5100 - 5200 thru 128bit bus.

If i get around to it today i'll bench the 1280x800 sense that's the closest this monitor will put out, doesn't do 1024 so....
