New NVIDIA Drivers and DirectX 9.0c

If you have a high-end NVIDIA card you will want these newly released versions. Forceware 61.77 for Window XP/2000 can be found here. This new version adds support for the Geforce 6800 series and DirectX 9.0c. After installing the drivers head over here for 9.0c. I played America's Army for a couple hours with these versions and all went well.

Far Cry 1.2 Patch Released *UPDATE*

Ubi has released a patch for the retail version of Far Cry. Changes include tweaks to most of the weapons, quicksave added to singleplayer, run speed increased, sprint lasts longer, a bunch of Punkbuster fixes, and lots more.
The official Far Cry site has links to the 65MB patch, and so does 3DGamers:

***UPDATE*** Ubi has now withdrawn the 1.2 patch due to "unexpected behaviour on specific hardware configurations." FileFront is still hosting the patch here.
