Nvidia warning
« on: June 18, 2013, 05:45:54 pm »
Apparently nVidia driver version 320.18 is crazy-bad — not only are people getting crashes in Firefox, in Internet Explorer, and in a lot of games, but it's also been BURNING OUT PEOPLE'S GRAPHICS CARDS!

nVidia are ignoring 1000+ post threads on their forums, and are still offering it as the current version.

If you updated your driver in the last few weeks, I'd recommend checking to see whether you have 320.18, so you can get rid of it sharpish. 314.22 is the previous safe version, which you can find here

Trying to live forever, so far so good!

Oh shit! That's why I'll stick with ATI/AMD.
You can do what he said, or you could buy an AMD :)

Ha, I tried the 320 beta a month or two back, shitty game performance and stuttering firefox. I rolled back to 314.

I will add though, I'm always sceptical of 'ur driverz fried my 680' rubbish, as long as the wind is blowing, it should be pretty damn hard to cook it.
Sick of this life,Not that you'd care. I'm not the only one with whom these feelings I share..
Nobody understands, quite why we're here, We're searchin' for answers that never appear..
But maybe if I looked real hard I'd I'd see you're tryin' too to understand this life that we're all going through..
(Then when she said she was gonna like wreck my car... I didn't know what to do)
