FFXIV with Nvidia Beta 260.63 driver?Follow

Has anyone tried playing the game with the current Nvidia beta drivers? I know it's been said they did improve the benchmark scores but curious about if anyone saw an improvement ingame.

I get the feeling it might not do much as the issue I'm really seeing for me is server lag and not graphical lag. Started a new character on Karnak this morning. I believe it had just gone up so it wasn't that heavy. Though there were several characters around my connection was very good. NPCs and players showed up when they should. No delay in actions. Going into the menu, etc went smoothly even when there were players running around. Didn't have any graphical issues. However as the day went on and more and more people filled up the server the lag became horrible.

However was still curious. If they did work a little perhaps I could bump up a setting or two. Don't want to install them without some feedback.

The beta drivers only added 3d to the benchmark. I tried them for the game and have since not used it, because it did nothing.

My SLI'd GTX 470s both sit at around 40% usage while playing FFXIV.. So I run folding@home on them in the background and it doesn't make the lag any worse. Paid $350 a piece for 'em so I might as well use 'em for something. Maybe someday we'll hear about the cure of Alzheimer's referencing a paper made by Stanford that used simulations done by idle graphics cards, owned by some random guy that was grinding low level mobs in FFXIV.. That would be epic.

I'm running the game just fine on the 260.63 driver. I was having a problem with my graphics card sending the wrong resolution to the monitor when coming out of sleep mode so I updated to the 260.63 driver and haven't had a problem in or out of game yet.
