I was just at the NVIDIA web site looking at the driver updates. Now I'm a little confused. For the nForce update, it tells me to uninstall the display drivers for NVIDIA.

My question is this, does the driver for the nForce SLi motherboard also put in the drivers for the video cards? Should I NOT install the video card drivers and let nForce handle it?

That doesn't sound right. Where did you read that you needed to unistall the Video Drivers?

But to answer your question, no - the motherboard drivers will only run you MoBo components (ie. Network, USB, Harddrives, and any special features like E-SATA).

If it does say for you to uninstall your video drivers, then you will definitely need to install them again afterwards! :thumbsup:
