    As I am having problems with the graphics Drivers (167.xx) that Apple have provided in Boot Camp 2.1, and my 3.06Ghz 8800GS iMac. I would like to update them. I was just wondering if anyone from these boards has, and what was the outcome?

    Which drivers do you recommend?

    Have you tried updating your driver's through Nvidia's website?

    That's the first thing I did - went to nVidias web site and downloaded the latest drivers for Vista 64.

    Yeah, I got NVidia to scan my system, and it said that the Drivers I used were up to date.

    Just updated to the 175.16 release from nVidia (using an 8800GT) and it ran without any problems.
