nVidia have released these drivers, still BETA

Supposed GTA IV SLi fix

Files Uploaded, now get to it and report back with these huge performance improvements.

New INF made v3.277a to allow for International file support

Only differences are:

International version added.

It should be with the original inf. Certainly with the modded inf though. I reckon this is a well anticipated one if that 'blazing' fast performance is realized!

I usually have to download the modded inf because my card is on my toshiba laptop and forces me to download the drivers from toshiba and those lazy pricks updates once a year or something.

Anyways, where can i download the modded inf for this release?
