    the beta doesnt run out and by early fall there gonna have release clients out
    anyone who tests win7 will also get a full free dowload of windows 7 ultimate
    and also windows 7 will automaticaly find the drivers... as will the new 188 series drivers work perfectly
    but for some reason i cant get my raid drivers working

    Umm... where did you hear that beta testers for win7 get a free copy? This NEVER happens. you will have to pay for your legit copy of win7 when it is released. The drivers that win7 install automagically for nvidia cards is a 178 series driver and does not include PhysX support. The full release is supposed to be between late Q3 and mid Q4, their target is definitely late 2009.

    Sorry, but iLoki is correct. I double checked the Windows 7 beta website FAQ's.

    The beta runs out August 1, 2009

    Running the beta now does not get u a free copy when it is released.

    Riiiiiiiight, they're gonna make available 2.5+ million free copies of what will probably be a ~150 dollar product? Do the math and think about it.
    And where can I get these 188 drivers? Typo maybe?

    You don't need to look for drivers, the card just works (like when you install ubuntu)

    yea it does, but only through standard VGA drivers (unless the windows update drivers manage to install automatically) and it will be crap for 3d acceleration until he updates the drivers to the nvidia or WDM drivers.

    NVidia's Windows 7 drivers are available through Windows Update. http://www.nvidia.com/object/windows_7.html
    Although Vista drivers will work fine, the Windows 7 drivers support the new Windows driver model, WDDM 1.1, which can give a performance boost in some areas. http://www.extremetech.com/article2/...2334155,00.asp
