    I'll be trying the tweakforce drivers (The ones I used for my Asus with a nVidia 7700 Go before I ordered my Penryn with the 8600gt). They always worked really well...and got good reviews.

    Do games require much higher frame rates than video typically does to still feel smooth?

    no, not really.

    30-60 is mostly fine. like a screen refresh rate. higher than 60 and your screen cant show it anyway.

    15 is do-able...
