So I'm thinking of getting a new video card and I'm thinking of doing a complete 360 for me and going with Nvidia instead of AMD. My question is how is Nvidia's GeForce 285.62 Drivers? I have heard that in the past Nvidia has had drivers that can cause lots of problems including complete system crashes that can be recovered until a new install of windows is done. In general how are Nvidia's cards and drivers and how do they perform when paired in an SLI config?

From my personal experience, having had NVidia cards in every PC I have owned apart from one, I have never had the drivers cause an unrecoverable crash. Infact, I have very rarely had the graphics drivers cause any crash at all unless I have been using a beta version.

I have alsways found Nvidia GFX drivers to be more stable than ATI's. Again the only time I have had issues is when using beta drivers.

In my opinion, making the switch from ATI/AMD to NVIDIA is a good move.

I have more success with NVIDIA when upgrading from integrated graphics to a video card.

Updating an ATI/AMD driver usually requires uninstalling the old version before installing the new version.

I don't have to do that when updating a NVIDIA driver.

The update to 285.62 went fine for both my GeForce 6200 and GeForce 8400 GS video cards.
