    I just picked up a 2010 MBP 17 and boot camped it with windows 7.. How to I get windows 7 to use the more powerful graphics card? seems to only be using the less powerful one..

    Are you sure? I was under the impression that only the fast one worked.

    PS. Upgrade the drivers from this page here.

    You sure. Windows doesn't use the integrated... hence why battery life isn't all that great on it.

    If you don't install the drivers off the OS X disc it will use the integrated. Thats most likely the problem. But yes once you have the drivers it will only use the 330M

    As far as I know.... nope.
    If you install the drivers coming with the SL install disc, you can only use the 330M.
