    Why am i doing what i'm doing ?

    I felt that the hardware review sites never updated their reviews with the
    latest drivers and the reviews were done with unmature drivers and this affects
    the consumer's decision. What if HD 3870 is faster than 9600GT with its current
    drivers? What if 8800GTS G92 is faster than 8800GTX with current drivers ? What
    is the best driver out there ? No review out there answers this question. SO i felt
    the need to answer this question so users can look at this thread and make a decision.
    With this motivation i will use this thread to keep track of the performance improvements
    with each and every driver release . Right now i have a 9600GT , so expect to see
    Nvidia drivers benchmarks right now .But i may soon get my hands on a ATI card,
    so i will add ATI drivers too to this thread . I will add new games too.

    Right now i'm beginning with Call of Duty 4 and FEAR. Expect to see World in Conflict,
    Company of Heroes, Crysis. I'll take ur requests for games and drivers .

    NOTE : this thread will only show if there r any performance
    improvements with the drivers, not a comparison against other cards. Also the hardware
    will not be overclocked, to show the minimum performance u can get out of this hardware,
    So with anything overclocked, expect better performance.
    Also i dont think i will do 3DMark scores here, as i dont think they reflect gaming performance
    and they can change so easily even with the same driver. If there is a majority request to that
    benchmark, then i'll do it.

    Here's the CPU'z and GPU'z screen that will be used always :

    NVIDIA

    Call of Duty 4

    The settings were as follows :

    The timedemos benchmarked were custom made by me. The maps were "Bog" and "Creek".
    THe timedemo was run 5 times and bechmarked with FRAPS. the average fps is reported by
    the extended console. If anyone needs the timedemos, i'll be happy to provide them.
