    I just brought a EVGA 8800GTS 512mb.:thumbsup:

    I am confused what is the current graphics driver for this card. I am running Windows XP 32-bit.

    1) Control Panel states my driver version is 6.14.11.6928 and when I press "Update" it states it cannot as it cannot find any more current drivers.

    2) NVidia website states the most current is 169.21 release date 19-12-2006

    3) I have installed the 169.28 release date 01/01/08 from EVGA website and I assume this is the most current, although when I use the NVidia Driver download website it stated that I should install the 169.21:confused:

    Any confirmation please??
