    The drivers at nvidia's site are called Detonators for some reason.

    nvidia drivers have ALWAYS been detonator the same as ATi drivers are Catalyst - its just the brand name
    if you want a stable and secure driver set download the latest offical driver set (45.23 i think) from

    Yeah, I believe they started calling them Detonators when they introduced Riva TNT. It wasn't called that with Riva 128 and earlier, so it's not always.

    Detonator to detonate TNT ;)

    Can i suggest using the BETA Detonator drivers - especially if you plan on running DX9 games - DO NOT use DET 51.75 - very very bad driver - DO USE DET 52.13 or above - very good drivers.

    Have fun - my DX9 performance has gone up 60% withthe new DET 50.xx series drivers.
