Thanks for posting this article Jeremy. I happen to own a GTX690 Signature Edition. I downloaded this update a couple days ago when I was auto-notified. I'm never sure how new drivers will affect my OS or other software, but so far so good. Reading this article makes me more at ease.

Also keep up the great work on the PC Perspective show on the the Youtube channel.

v/r,

Tim
