After downloading 313.96 driver for my gtx 670 ftw, it give me better performance for crysis 3 beta but it seems my other games started acting up as well. xcom started to run slugish and when i tried to play natural selection 2 my screen started to go black until I had to hard reset my pc. I also started getting displayport error messeges. Has anyone else had similar issues with this new driver? Will Nvidia release new non beta driver when crysis 3 releases?

No nothing like that, but they will definitely release another one when it launches. It will likely be beta first but they will have WHQL drivers out very soon after C3 launches, so I would roll back to the 310 drivers and wait.

I went back to 310 driver and problem went away. Will reinstalling 313.96 make any difference or do you think I will run into the same problem? Another question I have is when you installing new driver do you install custom or express (recomended). Do you install everything that is offered with the driver (such as 3d,sound?)

Sure does give me issues in Dead Space 3. All the doors with the glowing blue wheel handles make necromorph corpse sound that repeats in a loop. It's a very annoying sound. Had to roll back to 310.90 and it went away. Maybe I'll have better luck when I put in my GTX 670 today.

it will likely still be the same. Just wait. I always custom install and do a clean installation, stops any conflicting issues. I also dont install 3D stuff as i dont need it. But these likely wouldnt effect it all that much. Theyre mainly just for crysis 3 and nothing else

Actually, to the contrary.

The previous "Official" driver was the one giving me issues.

GW2 was the game giving me the most problems. My SLI setup was getting around 45-50% gpu usage in almost every part of the game.

While not perfect, this beta driver has greatly increased performance for me in GW2.

I had a lot of issues. Crashes and glitches with Warframe and The Witcher 2, couldn't start up a few other games, ect. Just rolled back until the official release.

Same here with The Witcher 2. I was playing it for my 2nd playthrough and the game froze my PC, and got the black screen. Mind you, my first playthrough, no issues whatsoever; TW2 is not a short game.
