Another ForceWare driverupdate. This one is a bit different though, it's online and serving from NVIDIA themselves (from the nzone pages) making it an official driver release. It's files are dated on the 19th of October 2004 making it the absolutely newest set available, it will work with all graphics cards from NVIDIA. I present you ForceWare 66.81 for Windows 2000/XP, this time with WHQL certification. These drivers are intended for the the Series 6 GPU's (GeForce 6200/6600/6800).

The driver includes a handy setup.exe and for the cards not supported, we included a modified .inf file to get you going.

If you give the drivers a try then be sure to let us know your experiences in our NVIDIA driver forums.
