just a warning to people

this driver hijacked my default audio settings from what they were and set them to the GFX Card

minor annoyance but annoying as F either way as it took me a few min to figure out why i no longer had sound from anything

I use the digital out from the mobo to an external device

also lots of posts on reddit about this killing performance in pretty much all games

Experience was able to update me to this driver but when I went to NVidia's site it mysteriously was not available for download even though it shows in the driver return results for my card. I just wanted a copy of it saved just in case instead of relying on experience.

Edit: Thanks to the nice folks over in the GeForce forums I found the directory where GeForce places the downloaded file and was able to copy it to my repository for safe keeping.. FYI experience places the file in c:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\Downloader then you have to look at the individual registry entries to find which one holds the file. This one was under C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\Downloader\65a121f0090af857a9857e3c8b00323d on my boot drive.

Flickering 2d elements in BF1 on Titan XP

Appears to be some stuttering but I may be imagining that

Do not upgrade

BF1 was broken by the BF update and is not specific to Nvidia drivers from what Nvidia rep said. A lot of Pascal people have GPU memory stuck at 810mhz or something awful like that. Driver is an absolute disaster and the worst one seen in years.

I was seeing some strange issues with watching streaming videos so I updated to the hotfix version. If they should reappear I'll report back in.
