    There are reports that the driver could potentially kill your graphics card...
    https://forums.geforce.com/default/...ay-driver-feedback-thread-released-5-23-13-/1

    "After installing this new driver, there are strange artifacts occurring in Bioshock Infinite. The performance has increased but these strange artifacts are ruining the experience. There were no such problems with the earlier drivers. Anybody facing similar issues or any different??

    "Hi, good afternoon.

    I was facing image corruption problems in Battlefield 3 with my EVGA GTX 660 Ti 3Gb (+SC)... and I could only solve them by downgrading the drivers to 306.97 WHQL. There's also some image corruption during a car-crash event in GRID 2. StarCraft 2 still crashes just by start playing.

    Anyway, the 306.97 seems to be the most stable driver nVidia released so far for the GTX 600 series.

    Cheers!

    Koben.
