 That's why I never download my drivers through MaxPC. Only when they're available from Nvidia themselves as as certified, non-beta. Jeez.....

Theyre slow to update as usual. Just give it a day or two

These drivers are not WHQL, if installed windows will simply complain that they are unsigned, and if you look at the file naming that nvidia uses you can see they are not WHQL.

 

a WHQL file

257.21_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english_whql.exe

 

A non WHQL or BETA file

 258.69_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english_beta.exe

 258.96_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english.exe

Is it me, or are these drivers still beta? I go through the selection to find the latest drivers and it keeps taking me to the 257.21 drivers. The site still shows the  258.96 drivers as BETA, not WHQL.

I have a 9800GTX+ with windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

They aren't beta if you select the 460 as your card. Maybe it's just me but they always seem slow to update the selections on the website for each card.
