I went looking for new drivers today and found this. What say you, maniacvvv? Is this program worth using? Express install seems like a terrible option, but what about the custom install thingo?

    I would not use the program for installing drivers, I turn off all the auto install, download and notifications. I just manually check and then install the drivers the old way. I have noticed that the program does a pretty good job with profiles. It makes the games run pretty smooth. Of course, I could do it myself, but this program makes it so I can be lazy and let it take care of things. I don't let it auto update game profiles either, I only optimize when I have looked over the optimal settings first.

    I would say play around with it and learn how too use it
    be sure too read the PDF User Guide
    also before installing GFE uninstall Nvidia update
    GFE in the very near future(couple months) will become Mandatory install for all Nvidia users
    see this video at 0:33:38 Tom Petersen explains it's importance (cant link vid do to someone's ignorance)
     so go too PCper dot com and see there review on the Titan the vid is part of the review

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN Performance Review and Frame Rating Update



    that entire vid is a good watch

    The GeForce Experience
    My suggestion would be to completely -avoid- using it at this time.
     
    This is a Nvidia "service" that just sounds wonderful. A hassle free Driver installer with automatic video game settings...
     
    Sadly Nvidia management is showing how little it understands about the current state of its own drivers and the Videogames that are played with its hardware.
     
    GeForce Experience is not designed to detect or avoid  possible issues with "other" third party software you might have installed on your system.
    It does not include any features to help users with "existing" Nvidia driver issues, like a broken PhysX install or corrupted OS entries.
    The GeForce Experience is designed around the concept of "one size fits all" Where all user configs are in perfect working order, system OS installs are identical, a users given Nvidia driver status is updated and functioning normally, that third party software that interacts with Nvidia drivers can be completely ignored and that patches to games after release will have no effect on the suggested settings....
     
    Oh if it was only that easy
    Nvidia management appears blind to the facts in this matter, if it thinks that users systems can be hardware scanned to match in-game settings and that its "express" driver install function has reached perfection.
     
    While this "service" -may- actually be helpful to some novice users regarding "suggested" in-game settings...
    -->The inclusion of the Nvidia driver installer functions is a "Honeypot" likely to to produce more serious issues, thus rendering any benefit of suggested settings completely moot.
     
    Dont get me wrong, I would love for this to become the real deal.
    Trouble free Nvidia driver installs, complete Nvidia and OS display driver issue repair and properly detected auto in-game settings as a baseline.
    The problem is the Nvidia management is smoking something, if they think this can be done with the resources, staff levels and funding that is currently provided for the GeForce Experience.
     
        
    Welcome to the Nvidia GeForce Experience
    NGE has detected a damaged PhysX install. Would you like to repair it? Y
     NGE has detected thrid party background software is running that will interfere with your Nvidia driver install. Shut it down before proceeding with the driver install? Y
    NGE has detected that the last time you played BF3 had screen tearing. Would you like NGE to correct this for you? Y  
    NGE has noted that BF3 is performing improperly. Would you like NGE to reduce browser VRAM loading to correct this? Y
    NGE has detected internet bandwidth issues that are effecting in-game performance. Would you like to view options to correct this? Y
     
    Etc..Etc

    Thanks for the replies. I was hoping that Nvidia had magicked up some wizzbang utility but I guess not.
