    I picked up 43.51 a while ago - should I re-download and install again?

    Probably if you want them MS certified. You won't get the warning about them not being certified when installing.

    Wondering if this quote is true....

    MS doesn't allow any 'performance tweaks' in WHQL Cert drivers. So more than likely, unless these are DX9 optimized, they will be slower than the current ones available.

    Of coarse this isn't true...you can download WHQL certified drivers from Nvidia all day long & tweak to your hearts delight as you can the beta non-WHQL drivers.

    It's the WHQL certified drives you get from M$ update site that have a neutered control panel and prevents tweaking.

    I think MS disables those tweaking features so that if 1 million users, were to tweak and screw it up, then MS would be to blame LOL
    ;D

    They do it so they don't have to answer questions about it I think.
