Use nVidia ones please Jim, not Windows update ones.

Thanks Jason, I've been running 344.11 for quite a while and they have been running great.

Will the new Windows WDDM drivers have make any change to the nVIDIA and ATI/AMD Drivers that I have installed?

I'm running 3 win 7 boxes and am not getting any GPU work on my nVidia boxes and have changed nothing at all. The ATI box is still getting work.
It seems that all of the nVidia tasks are pending so not getting any new GPU tasks on those boxes.

AstroPulse tasks may use a bit more CPU than MultiBeam but well-tuned AstroPulse applications will also push the GPU a lot harder and often run them at higher temperatures compared with MultiBeam.


That pretty much answered my question...I don't want to over stress my OLD stuff until I can afford to rebuild.(About 20 more months.) I'm on a very tight budget. Thanks folks.

I've NEVER crunched APs on my video cards. Do they create more heat than MBs?
Also since I run Lunatics would I have to reinstall to do so?

I am truly thankful that you folks are willing to do this testing.
And so far the Information that I'm getting is going a long way in helping Me decide if I even want their FREE Upgrade.

<EDIT>Does it actually work as an Upgrade or does it overwrite everything?</EDIT>
