    Default Nvidia or Leadtek drivers?

    Video card is a Leadtek Winfast A6600 GT TDH

    I was wondering if anyone could advice me on which site I should download the updated drivers from, Leadtek site or direct from Nvidia site. The Nvidia site drivers seem to be newer.

    Regards,
    Dave

    If the videocard is Nvidia based, the Nvidia drivers wont hurt.

    And if the Nvidia drivers say its for that card, it should be OK.

    start with the leadtek ones. the newer nvidia ones may give better performance/quality however leadtek is known to customise their drivers. also the leadtek apps may not work with other nvidia drivers (uninstall winfox otherwise you risk pc crashing when you install the other drivers).
    Tweak it till it breaks

    I'm with tweak'e on this one. If you look around people are modding the leadtek drivers so everyone can use them. It would seem leadtek work very closley with nvidia on drivers.

    Seems strange, the Leadtek drivers are based on the Nvidia reference drivers after all which is why the are always a release behind, and all they do is add more fat,and when the nvidia drivers are so full featured (especially when coolbits is enabled) I personally can't see the point (and if you anything like me the first thing i do after install is jump into startup and remove any fat the crap installs)
