NVidia WHQL driver 296.10 was released today Tue March 13 on the NVidia site. It is an equivalent driver to the 296.17 driver released for Windows 8. I have a feeling it's going to be a better driver for Modern Warfare 3 than was the 295.73.

Thanks. I'll try it and hope performance wasn't bad like 295.73 (maybe it's because I'm on xp?).

Well performance was the same in MW3 but it dropped in Black Ops by quite a bit (20fps).

why doesn't the fps limiter function work? also is FXAA missing for everybody from control panel?

edit: it seems FXAA only works in OpenGL games or atleast for me.

The FXAA that we can use in MW3 is currently only available in the 295.18 driver but I think NVidia's next driver in the 300.xx driver family will have it available for us. It might be out within 2 weeks.

After installing 296.10, I got back to back MOABs... I'm not saying the driver helped, but it certainly didn't hurt. ;-P

None of the drivers have made a difference to me using the gtx580, this games always ran perfect with every driver update.
