Hey guys

This freakin drivers stuff is drivin me mad: Which drivers am I supposed to download? I have a GF2 GTS card and an AMD TB 1333 w/ Abit Kt7A mobo.

This drivers issue is really drivin me nuts cause I don't know the difference between Detonator 3, 6.50 drivers and 12.10 or 12 drivers. Are all of these Detonator 3 drivers and 12.10 is just a better or newer version than 6.50 or what???
Most of the non-offical drivers are to fix problems with certain games,hardware or performance improvement.
Starting with the 10.80 version support for the GeForce 3 was added.

The 10.80 are my favorite for now.
