**Confusion** - I installed a new GPU (Nvidia 9800 GT) about a month ago and it works great but I wanted to see if I had the latest driver, so I went to device manager > display adapter > properties and jotted down my driver version number, 7.15.11.8122. I then went to Nvidia and the latest driver for my adapter is 182.50, so I downloaded it. After downloading, I moused over the new driver and it was named file version 4.0.100.1190! How the bleep is anyone supposed to know what they need when there seems to be no standard convention for version numbers!! What am I missing here?
