Just installed these on RC2. Seems like Vista RC2 x64 likes them. I will report back later after I put them to the test. Still a long way to go till we get FULL SUPPORT from nVidia.

Shame on Nvidia, still no full support for AA and No SLI. Thank god I still dual boot. Wake UP Nvidia. This driver might as well be in beta still. Read the release notes.

Limitations in This Release

The following are features that are not currently supported or have limited

support in this driver release:

? Refresh Rate Precision

The current driver programs the hardware timing for a 59.94 Hz refresh rate

to be the same as the timing used for a 60 Hz refresh rate.

? Pan & Scan

This driver does not support the Pan & Scan feature. (Pan & Scan is the

process of panning across the desktop in order to display a desktop on a

monitor with lower resolution).

? DirectX Antialiasing

The NVIDIA Control Panel does not offer full antialiasing support for

DirectX applications. NVIDIA Control Panel antialiasing should be set to

Application-controlled to ensure compatibility with all DirectX applications.

? Full-featured HDMI Support

The following are known problems that will be fixed in a future driver

version:

? There are some known image quality issues.

? Noise and pixel corruption occur under Clone or Dualview modes.

? Only stereo audio is supported; 5.1 surround is not supported.

? INF Support for Restricted Timings

This driver version does not support the use of Restricted Timing settings

(R&T strings) in the INF to control mode validation and/or mode setting for

custom mode/adapter/monitor combinations. This capability is planned for

a later driver release.

? Display rotation

The NVIDIA Control Panel does not include display rotation controls.

? Overscan/Underscan Support

The ability to display the entire desktop on a TV is not supported?the

desktop will be masked instead.

? Advanced Timings, Custom Resolutions

This driver does not support adding arbitrary resolutions and timings.

C H A P T E R 2 : R e l e a s e 9 5 D r i v e r C h a n g e s Ve r s i o n 9 7 . 4 6 H i g h l i g h t s

? Mode Filtering for Custom Policies

This driver does not support defining advanced timings and resolution

settings.

? SDI

This driver does not support the Serial Display Interface (a standard for

driving high color depth displays).

? Genlock/Frame Lock

This driver does not support the ability to synchronize multiple display

outputs with an external signal.

? NVIDIA SLI Technology

This release is intended to serve as a functional preview for application

porting purposes, and not as a performance driver.

? NVIDIA TurboCache

The driver is capping Shared System Memory at 255 MB on systems with 1

GB of system memory, and at 271 MB on systems with 2 GB or more of

system memory. An upcoming driver will increase this amount of memory.

Optimum performance will not be achieved with low frame buffer

TurboCache graphics cards.

We'll have to wait until vista is out for public to get 8800 drivers... like me, you'll have to endure Standard VGA for 3 more weeks

Yay, finally!

Let's hope they're decent. Depending on the comments people leave in this thread who're running Vista, I might reinstall my TechNet copy to test these out with games.

Then I'm only waiting for SetPoint drivers before I can upgrade ^^

It baffles me why nVidia continues to shoot themselves in the foot with Vista by not having either an SLI driver or a driver for the 8800 series this late in the game. **** poor.
