    sorry guys I had to remove the hosting of these sets on Driverheaven server, the server is trying to cope with the demand for omegas recent nvidia sets, 50 gigs of downloads in a day, and over 1 million hits in the last 24 hours ....... I had to reboot the server there.

    Apparently the directx refresh fix is automatic with these. HIghest score ever for what its worth on 3dMark. All looks well so far.

    the 28.8 meg set install fine, new v-sync options, good performance, look (so-far) a well performing set, much like 6200c benchies.

    UT2003 runs noticably faster for me with these over either the RC0 or 6200C sets. OpenGL speed seems at least OK, but I'm having weird lighting problems running Deus Ex in OpenGL with these; the OpenGL from the 6200C set seemed to be at least as fast and without any problems.

    Tearing

    The tearing in bright environments, like muzzle flashes, etc is still there. Look att the muzzle flashes in the lobby sequence in 3DMark 2001, you will see some horizontal disruption.
