    I tried updating the drivers because the game performance is crap.
    The new drivers won't recognize the graphics card.
    I'm currently using the old
    91.47_forceware_winxp64_english_whql.exe

    This was like in 2006 but it's the only one that actually works.

    I am running both Vista and XP on my mac pro and simply went to the nvidia website and downloaded the newest drivers and installed...

    I am not sure why it would not be working for you..

    OK.. its not crap... not really... Its a solid dependable card that makes NO NOISE and is ideal for someone who isn't doing graphical intense projects.

    However, for gaming and serious video projects, it does indeed suck ass.....

    Get the X1900... it will save the day for you... ONce you get that into your Mac, it turns into a very ncie gaming machine, both in OS X and Windows

    I was under the impression that Parallels (and Bootcamp) superseded your device drivers with ones of their own in order to interface the Windows OS to the Mac hardware structure? and installing any other drivers was just a waste of time... I could be (and probably am) wrong.. but that was the perception that I got

    I have heard good things about Omega drivers for PC, but I haven't tried them myself.

    Warning:site is a little difficult to navigate.

    Parallels will not allow a new video driver, but in Bootcamp it should not be a problem..

    I have used the Omega drivers a few times, especially on my ATI based PC's... I feel they work VERY well...

    Have you ever used them on bootcamp? I might try them with my x1600, even though the normal drivers are doing fine.
