i own a geforce 6600 pci-e card, i've never tried forceware before as i use the default factory driver cd for my card, but recently a new game has demanded me to update my drivers for my card and i don't know weather i should choose between installing the latest forceware or video drivers from nvidia, i'm having a tough time deciding which one to install as i don't know the difference between them, so here are my questions:


-should i choose FORCEWARE or just the normal driver update from nvidia? which one is actually better?


-i heard forceware could severely damage the card if it's inproperly used, pelase explain more.


-what are the other minor or major difference between the two?




many thanks for the help.

Hi coolaid
Nvidia forceware are the official drivers for Nvidia there are the signed which are normally 100% safe and the beta witch are out on test as such.
The latest driver from Nvidia 93-71 a few cards have a problem with so I would recommend
you download NVIDIA Forceware 91-47 and try that one.But what you will need to do is to clean your drivers before installing your new one's if you dont you may get a problem.Download driver cleaner pro it is free and made for Nvidia drivers.Read all about how to use it BUT AWAYS CLEAN IN SAFE MODE.
Just type into google what you want.

Rex
