    If so, were there noticeable gains? Any bugs or problems? This is on Windows of course.

    Thanks.

    A question, where did you get them from?
    I thought the latest drivers availiable from Apple for Bootcamp were 167.44,
    link to the new ones please?

    I was using 169.32 for a little bit. They seemed alright, but I only tested them out in Medieval 2 Total War. Right now I'm using 171.14 I think, iirc.
    Anyway, I didn't encounter any problems with them.

    How well does Medieval 2 run on the MBP by the way?

    can get it from http://laptopvideo2go.com


    but i'd stick to 167 serise

    "169 series (v169.xx): NVIDIA's driver branch optimized for desktop GPUs.
    167 series (v167.xx): NVIDIA's driver branch optimized for mobile GPUs. "

    Currently using the 17x series on Vista Business 64bit

    I'm surprised at how many folks think they need bootcamp's nvidia drivers to use with their mobile nvidia GPUs.
