    well as the title suggests, i wanna know what is generally the top one out there specially for the g51vx-a1.
    from what i see it seems that the 186.81 ,186.82 , "185.85 DOX" are the ones to go for but i am not sure. based on your experiences what do you think is the best?
    specially for Arkham Asylum and crysis and other graphically demanding games

    ya this is the one i am using right now and its great however i wanted to check
    the feedback on the other 2 drivers
    in arkham asylum it tells me that my driver is old so i was wondering if the other 2 will be better. i know i can just try them and see myself but i am 2 lazy to keep doing a clean install for each driver until i find the one i want lool

    186.81 works great. I think I have the highest G51 score with them.

    Despite saying it is old, it provides more frames than stock in your games and is the "gamers choice" in regards to drivers on mobile nvidia card. Don't worry too much about, I gained 5-10 frames in crysis when I went from stock to DOX drivers, they do provide a good added boost in regard to speed in games ;)!

    My vote is also on 186.81 WHQL. Dox's drivers run pretty darn hot on my 9800m GS as it was expected, so I switched to 186.81 WHQL

    I'm curious on why your WEI is showing 6.5 for the GTX260, whereas i'm only getting 5.8 and 5.9, using the 186.81 WHQL drivers as well (the ones from the nvidia site). Not that the WEI is an indication of real world performance, but it still makes me wonder.. have you by chance, overclocked your card?
