I was going to upgrade to Vista, but I heard on Attack of the Show's The Feed that NVidia's Vista-capable cards were failing to be compatible. I haven't found any information about this other than that little piece on the show. Has anyone had any trouble with their NVidia cards and Vista? Should I wait to upgrade?

nVIDIA's Vista-drivers still leave something to be desired. They aren't as stable as on the XP side and don't perform as well. I haven't run into any direct compatibility issues but I would not rule it out.

I have seen issues with the video cards, but it's nothing that can't be worked with. nVidia continues to release driver updates for these cards and - so far - each update has helped things along.

The problem that I have been having with nVidia is that I can't find a driver for my GeForceGO 7300TC Graphics Card. If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated thanks

I'm using BETA 8800 drivers and, even though I can run most games and use Aero, the performance has been far from stellar. I can't even run Europa Universalis 3, which is on the low-end of the graphics spectrum.
