    I for one appreciate this update. Had problems opening Media Player Classic with the last driver, which is now fixed with this one and it is normal to release drivers when for their new products.

    Be nice if they weren't a gigantic hassle to install. The 'experience' couldn't even manage to download them "check internet", an 'express' update "failed", a 'clean' install "failed". Had to go around manually deleting everything Nvidia related to get it to work.

    Installed mine last night, rebooted and massive screen corruptions. I had to do a system restore.

    Actually, the past couple r340 drivers have been quite decent, performance and stability wise, for both Fermi and Kepler cards. While performance improvements are obviously always welcome, I sure welcome bug ironing the same or even more.

    Not much love for Geforce Experience, though.

    About the new dynamic cache feature, it's interesting and it's almost always recommended to be enabled, yet for some reason cache size is static, set to 120MB (IIRC), which in all honesty just isn't enough for any system that happens to run a dozen or more games at a given time.

    Yeah, same here! Installed new drivers on custom 'clean install'.... Black screen. Ran system restore, exactly the same issue again on express install as well. That's on 8.1 with 2 670's..

    No problems here. Downloaded and custom clean install selected and they work fine. I only use the actual driver and physics driver, none of this geforce experience stuff or 3d drivers.

    When did driver installs become such bloated masses of rubbish? I've been away from Windows for a while so this was a real shock - what happened to the standard Windows installer? An OT rant you may think but it's the thought of having to deal with such trashy installers such as nVidia's that ensure I won't be upgrading any time soon.

    You don't have to install everything. If you select custom installation you can choose what to install. That's what I do because I feel the same way as you. I don't want or need the likes of Geforce Experience or Shadowplay.

    What's wrong with it?
    I just updated and it was fine. Pretty nice interface to be honest. Hit 'custom' and install what you like, or just install as is and have a few extra things in the nvidia directory. The size difference is tiny.
