    Driver Downloads

    Just downloaded latest Windows 8.1 64-bit driver for my NVidia GTX 760 and noticed the file size - 293MB !!!

    That's just ridiculous

    Re: Driver Downloads

    is this because of the new NVidia game experience? seems it has optimised settings for tons of games

    not sure if this is the cause, and if so, is there an alternative

    Violence and Lubrication is the solution to fixing everything, if it still doesn't work, you need more lubrication.

    The experience bit is ~15MB.
    PhysX is 100MB+, with the rest being made up by various components.

    I don't get the issue though. It only installs what you ask it to. The Catalyst suite is 273MB too.

    Re: Driver Downloads

    I guess I'm getting old (have got old?).

    When you consider that the original retail edition of Windows 95 came on 13 DMF formatted floppy disks (approx. 22MB total) ...

    Re: Driver Downloads

    Think you have to download whole package e.g drivers or geforece experience, than it lets you select what components you want to install. Would of been better if I could just download what I wanted as some updates only h
    ave changes in few components and not all
