    Unless he means under Windows / Boot Camp - but even then I'd just used Apple's supplied boot camp drivers.

    yeah sorry, i meant in windows. the bootcamp drivers are old, and arent optimized for windows 7. Nvidia have released w7 drivers for all their nforce chipsets, so i wanted to grab them...

    I haven't seen anyone try it so it would be nice if OP could post results. If in does work without having to adjust anything, how much of an increase would we see if anything? I mean the Apple supplied drivers work so I would assume the OP is looking for better battery life and if that's the case, would upgrading the driver for the chipset even do that?
