This is related to my other thread, but this is something I've wondered for a while and a general thread to cover this topic seems reasonable.
Often with video cards the first release is buggy, the last release is slow and targets newer products. There's a middle ground, and often odd game problems or hardware problems lead one to finding the one specific driver that works.
For example, my Tyan Tiger 133 seems to operate best with the 30.xx series of Nvidia drivers when using a Geforce 2, and the 71.XX series with a Geforce 4. Further testing being done in my spare time- now that the damn thing works.
What cards do you have, and what are you chosen specific drivers? Can we assemble a list of cards and their best available drivers? TNT - Geforce 7, and all in between, for 9x and 2k/xp? Speed and compability.
