Mar 6th 2010 8:00AM Guys, apart from that fan speed control issue, the 196.75 are awesome and offer far superior performance to the 196.21 drivers.
You can easily circumvent the issue by either setting your fan speeds manually, or setting up low-level fan speed thresholds in Rivatuner, so it changes the speed up and down for you (basically what the Nvidia driver should be doing, but isn't.)
There is a great tutorial over on Guru3D about how to do this, google "rivatuner fan speed tutorial".
I'm sticking to my 196.75 !
Jul 16th 2009 6:06AM I'm torn on this. If you have a kid, you should really drag your ass away from the computer to interact with it. Teaching your sprog "spatial awareness" through WoW is B.S., how about playing outside?
Being a player myself I'm not damning the game, but it is pretty addicting and turning your kids onto something addicting is probably not a good idea.
FWIW, I don't plan to ever have kids, so this is a moot point for me.
May 14th 2009 9:15AM Is WoW addicting? Well.
Once I had a job which wouldn't allow for any time to play since it involved a lot of trouble, and I didn't really miss it at all.
I wasn't really jonesing for a "WoW fix", because I had better things to do, which was surprising. This went on for about 3-4 months, in which I logged a few hours played at best.
Afterwards, I had more time again, so I played more again... so somehow, this addiction theory doesn't really wash.
It is however devious at making you spend more time than you initially wanted to. "Lets do a few quests" easily turns into "gotta finish this level" and then of course you have to train your skills and put all the stuff in the AH and by the time you are all finished, birds are chirping outside and it's 7am whaaa? ;) (You've all been there.)

Mar 12th 2009 10:20AM Hmmm, their patent was filed in 2007 and WoW was released in ... 2004 ? They can suck it. Activision-Blizzard's lawyers will bomb them back to the stone age.
Nov 6th 2008 4:48PM taxi fare? you really need to get out more.. maybe get a job and some transportation.
Dec 18th 2007 8:20AM If he's a master of the Arcane, why does he use only fire and frost spells? NOOB :P XD
Dec 8th 2007 2:06AM I have fishing 375 and I do it all the time.
Especially in Swimming Form on my druid. How you gonna click the bobber now biach!!?!?
Seriously, all is fair in love and Warcraft. Stop being so emo.
Dec 5th 2007 8:49AM Stop your QQ'ing already.. money is sooooo easy to come by in this game. Not to mention that once you have one 70 getting a mount and a set of 18 slot bags for your alt is chump change.
Work for it people, this game is too easy already, the last thing it needs is to be made even easier.
