Reviewing 320.00 Beta (Apr 23, 2013)
This driver working well with no problems up to now.
However betanews this is a beta driver and is not WHQL certified.

2 days use, no issues. Update was clean and simple.
Reviewing 314.14 Beta (Mar 5, 2013)
one more reason to turn OFF windows update and then update manually.... I hate windows update!!!!
Reviewing 310.70 (Dec 13, 2012)
Unfortunately this beta is not a good release, at least for my 9xxx series desktop card . For my 9xxx series video card, I get a black screen after install in Windows 8 32-bit. Had to cold poweroff by holding down the power button a few seconds.
UPDATE WINBDOWS 8 BLACK SCREEN ISSUE!!
Apparently the black screen is caused by windowsupdate installing the stock driver in the background, and this conflicts with the new driver being installed.
Thanks to "battleaxe231" for finding the issue.
Here's what you need to do for windows 8 install:
1.) Make sure you have the 310.70 driver already downloaded on your PC
2.) Boot into safe mode in windows 8, uninstall the existing NVidia driver via add/remove programs. If it's the stock driver from windows, right click on the video card in device manager and select "uninstall". Now while in safe mode, go to device manager and temporary disable your wired/wireless nic and reboot into normal mode.
3.) In normal mode, check device manager video card, it should say "wddm", now you can install 310.70 and reboot.
4.) After rebooting it should now work fine from here, go to device manager and re-enable your wired/wireless nic

Still stutters under every game, and especially CS:GO, when running Win 7 64-bit.
NVidia, when will you fix this critical bug???
It's not happening with the 306.23 version, and it's kind of old, becasuse it's lagging SLI profiles for the newest games.
BTW, it could be that's it´s a bug specific related to my GTX 590 card.
Anyone had issues in getting this to download ?
I have tried many many times over the past few days, it hangs for ages in the Firefox download window with 'A few seconds remaining', eventually shows complete, but running it always fails as a bad 7-Zip.
Have also tried getting it from other sites with the same result.
If anyone has got it ok, fancy throwing it up to Mediafire etc for me ?
257.21, lowered my performance on win7 x64....so went back to 197.45.
Nvidia suprised me by releasing this!
