This particular driver CD contains ForceWare 174.40 drivers. Driver CDs usually are behind the reference drivers, as NVIDIA has launched the 175.16 Forceware drivers I would suggest using that version. Also on the Driver CD is a copy of earlier Force ware drivers that support the 9800GX2 and Adobe Acrobat to read PDFs.
