    I just buit a new computer(my first), and it loads pretty quickly but if I drag any windows around, or for instance, if I scroll down this website, it is extremely choppy and slow. I figured it was because my video driver wasnt updated, but when I tried to download it, nothing happened and there's no download button! I'm using a 6800 untill my 8800GT gets here, which will be about 20 days, so I'd like to get this working. Here's the link that's supposed to be the driver download page
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_163.75.html

    If this helps at all:
    Windows xp pro w/ SP2
    4gb ram
    intel q6600 @ stock-2.4GHz

    Thanks in advance :)

    There is a Download Now button on that site.
    There is also a link to Driver Installation Hints you should read and follow before installing the new drivers.

    ...lol wheres the download now button? And i already read the driver instillation hints. I've read every single sentence on that page like 10 times now. I check the I agree to the terms of service, but there's no download button.

    -I feel like such a noob.

    Well, that didn't work.
    The Download Now button is just to the right of I have read and agree to the terms--etc.on the same line. If you don't see it, try finding that page by pasting the link indto your Address line.
