    Yea, I just tried them for awhile.... Crysis crashed 3 times on me over a short period of time, where 17's ran smooth.

    I will say yhis set looked better in most parts, yet also had some glitches, like flashes lights / glares that just shouldn't have been there.

    FPS average was about 21 for my rig, where as the 17's were about 23 average according to the crysis bencmarking tool.

    Ok, I'll try Crysis later when I get home. Ran a few benchmarks for about 12 hours with .17 yesterday (overklocking) and everything was fine, no crashes or strange glitches. Anyway, sholdnt take long to see if it's something wrong with these drivers..

    Uppdated:
    Benchmarked for 10 hours with .21, no crashes, to me these are very much alike .17. Haven't tested the performance though, but same score in 3DMark06...
