    I'm not sure. Haven't tried it. Still using the last @j95 mod. Maybe I will image my OS again this weekend before testing it so I can restore the image if it sucks. I don't trust NVIDA as far as I can throw them, so I don't want to make changes without an escape route. The way things are getting, no telling what kind of irreversible changes their newest cancer drivers might inflict on the OS.

    Yup, I agree. Looking good.

    We used to say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" but that's starting to look more like "if it ain't broke yet, wait wait for the next driver update" LOL. With the Pascal launch upon us the danger of Maxwell getting crippled by NVIDIOT cancer drivers is real.

    Thanks. Yeah you never know from these Morons. Have seen that those with AW upgraded with Maxwell is recommended to update the OS before new graphics driver. Why?? I dislike such a way to do things!!

    Definitely a solid driver. If anyone is on the fence I say get these installed.

    Hi, I'm looking for some advice from someone who has experience with recent Nvdidia drivers:

    As I have mostly played The Witcher 3 over the last year, but also some MGS V, my MSI GT72 2QE (980M, Windows 8.1) was kept on 355.82, the driver that was released as the Game Ready driver for the latter game. All in all, that driver has served me well.

    However, now it's time to move on to more recent games and I'm wondering which driver version to update to. 368.81 is the most recent WHQL version and from reading this thread it seems to be a solid driver. I also understand that many see 362.00 as the "best" most recent offering from Nvidia. So my choice basically boils down to those two.

    I would really appreciate some advice, maybe even from someone with the same or similar system specifications. Thanks a lot in advance.

    365.19 or 362. They're both solid but I haven't had any issues with 365.19 and it gave my old Kepler card a nice boost too so I run it on both my laptop and my desktop.

    Thanks for the quick reply. 365.19 wasn't even on my radar.
