    Default Re: Why I dont receive updates through Nvidia CP?

    For sure, that NVIDEA web site is a treasure trove of good stuff.

    When W8 was still in Beta, NVIDEA already had Win-8 drivers for my new video card.
    That was truly a very refreshing surprise, especially since HP had absolutely Nothing for W8.

    Thanks for that link. I did just download the latest driver for my NVIDEA graphics card.
    I wouldn't accept that info from just anyone, only from someone I trust. (like Drew said)

    Thanks again!

    I am going to support & re-enforce this on 2 fronts:

    1, over time, I have come to prefer Nvidia over AMD. My own vid card is, from experience & by choice, Nvidia. And I have, in the past, used both.
    And, yes, it was impressive, a couple of years ago, when I was Beta Testing Windows 8 for Microsoft, that Nvidia offered drivers for it and very soon after the 1st Beta was put in our hands.

    And the 2nd, I could say a lot but, won't. This is nothing new or recent. But, again from experience over the years w/ customers machines & activities w/ other IT Pros... HP stinks w/ it comes to drivers, any & all, video or other. They will either offer nothing & or lag so badly it's somewhere between shocking, outrageous & unacceptable.

    Part of the reason I never recommend HP. Only a part of why I don't/won't.
    (If you read this and are someone who has had a good experience w/ HP or HP machines, well, that's cool, too; it's been known to happen)

    And w/out meaning (or wanting) to open up a can of worms (and sorry Cat) but, I'm not too crazy about Dells, either.

    I think IT Pros like HPs & Dells because of billable hours, if you get my drift. (said w/ a smile & a giggle)

    Cheers,
    Drew
