Never had any driver issues or issues in general with my 660. I've updated every single time too.

So out of the frying pan and into the fire then, lol.


You can say that all you want, but you don't see a topic full of AMD users complaining about how games are unplayable because of drivers. I've owned two different 7xxx series cards and used a lot of different drivers for them, never had a single problem.

The BL2 crashing was a nightmare for me. Thankfully 314.22 is still stable.

I've had less issues since switching from 314.22 to 320.18, and now I'm on 320.49. I also have one of the cards that was said to be a prime example of how the 32x.xx drivers are bad (GTX 780).

And I've owned AMD cards in the past, and while they were nice enough when everything clicked, the driver install/update/tweaking process was a PITA compared to Nvidia. That is not to say Nvidia's drivers are spotless, anything but, but they're still less of a hassle than AMD.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't have problems when I update my drivers.

I've installed the new WHQL and it seems fine so far.

No, you don't see a topic. You see bunches of them.

My point is that while yes, AMD has a less than stellar track record, the 7xxx series has improved on that in a huge way. The dynamic is starting to change, so while AMD has had less and less drivers issues (even Crossfire frame pacing was addressed), Nvidia is seeing more and more issues.
