I have a GeForce 7800GTX i was running windows XP with driver Version: 81.95, i then formatted and installed media center and installed the Media center driver Version: 77.79. The confusing part is is the driver older ? i dont want to run media center with an old driver as it doesnt list that it supports HDTV/COD2/Quake 4 if you look at the descriptions for both drivers.

If you look at the descriptions the 81 driver seems to support more. I dont want to have media center installed if it is going to hold me back by having a crappy old driver installed. But i want the proper media center driver because it gives media center features for my card!! oh this is annoying! :)
