www.nvidia.com

For Nvidia Downloads.

On the upper left side click the drivers tab.

For safety always go to the makers website, not through a Google search.

Good Luck

HI,I was looking for the web site for NVIDIA and when i was searching for it i ran
across several similar looking sites,is there a way to pick the true web site.
I have ran into sites in the past and ended getting misdirected to a site totally
different then what i wanted,it all boils down to deciphering which site is the right one,thanks

One safe way is look in the manual or on the box that the hardware came in, Quite often the website is listed there.
Another way look at the name.
examples: ASUS motherboards www.asus.com or Nvidia www.nvidia.com or Intel www.intel.com

If you just keep going through Google you will end up infected.

This isn't perfect but if you only go to the green sites you will be safer.
