I'm only quoting off the nvidia website.

and i can't seem to find the release page your looking at Shought.

If i select my 8800GT and OSs then it still points me to 169.25 as WHQL.

if the 174.74 drivers were "designed" for the card, why not link it on the nvidia site?

OK, all the hardware sites are reporting it as "added support" for those cards, why does the nvidia site differ?

*shrugs*
