Question: What Windows 2000/XP drivers should I use?

Answer: There are a number of driver sets that you can use:

Firstly, Windows XP supplies drivers for the GeForce family - they appear to be based on the 12.91 NVIDIA reference drivers. However you should read the ''Hardware accelerated OpenGL doesn't seem to be working at all in Windows XP. How can I fix it?' question before simply using the default drivers.

Secondly, there are manufacturer driver sets. These driver sets are usually based on the NVIDIA reference drivers with customised control panels and possibly more options. However they are likely to not be as up to date as the NVIDIA reference drivers. You will have to visit your manufacturer's website to find out about the drivers that they supply and what additional features they may offer.

Thirdly, there are NVIDIA's reference drivers.
There are generally a few versions available: one (or two) official versions and some leaked versions that are not officially supported but may be faster or have more features than the official drivers (and may also be slower and have less features).

Note that it seems that all Windows 2000 drivers have the following issues at the moment:

You will not be able to enable SMP in Quake 3 Arena without Quake 3 Arena crashing. Read the 'How can I get SMP working with Quake 3 Arena under Windows 2000?' question for information on how to fix this.
You will not be able to enable TV-OUT without a reboot in these drivers. Read the 'How can I enable TV-OUT in Windows 2000 (and without a reboot)?' question.
The refresh rates available in high resolutions do not go as high as those in the Windows 9x/ME drivers.

Also note that many of the notes for the drivers in the 'What Windows 9x/ME drivers should I use?' question also apply to these drivers.

Detonator (3.xx & 4.xx series) drivers
Detonator 2 (5.xx series) drivers
Detonator 3 (6.xx - 11.xx series) drivers

è quello che mi chiedo anche io , alcune volte vedo delle differenze di 8 frame in ogni singolo test e il risultato magari è addirittura + basso del solito

i test sintentici sono da prendere con le molle, il modo migliore pe provare una scheda video è di giocarci
