Just downloaded them.. will check them out on my 9800GX2 later once I am home.

These are the drivers designed for FarCry2 so they should be good.

They seem to be getting good performance for most people so fingers crossed.

I`m actually using the 180.43s (with modified inf). Had to install them as FC2 wouldn`t run even with the 180.10s. Can`t comment on whether they`re good or bad, just using me ole card til I get my RMAd one back
