NVidia GeForce Detonator Driver ver. 12.41 is digitally signed by Microsoft
and WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Lab) certified as well. I'm not aware of
any stability issues. I use a GeForce card instead of a Matrox because I
need its OpenGL performance and features. It's not for games. Matrox is a
fine adapter but less useful than the nVidia offerings in 3D applications.
Flaky drivers could be an issue in a system with an ATI adapter.
