Comparing the version numbers, only the audio driver and the installer have been updated.

In fact you can already get the new audio driver via Windows Update.

I don't believe you can. I can't anyway. But yes only the audio is updated. Thx for the trouble you went to though.

I wouldn't get these drivers as the asus board has a different audio system to the epox. Remember when installing the reference v2.0 drivers when it said that the audio bit would not be installed on the asus board

What exactly are the differences between the Epox nforce2 driver set and the nvidia nforce2 driver set?

Is the problem with the ide driver and stuttering fixed yet? Last time I installed it was so bad that I had to format (removal caused a variety of problems), but I really do like how little the cpu usage was with it.

I guess with the new nVidia ref drivers it doesn't matter but the Asus has some features which are enabled in Asus' drivers for sound. Non Asus boards can use Asus drivers but Asus users will lose functionality of the extra features when using ref drivers, e.g. additional mic input.

I am using the Asus drivers now unless you didn't guess already.

I don't have any IDE problems and loaded the MCP driver manually after doing the default install (which also works fine).

I wouldnt bother with 2.03 unless you have not yet used windows update to update your Nforce Audio to driver 2917 (now been available for over 5 weeks from MS).

The UDP still has the bug that stops it from installing the SW IDE drivers correctly.

Apart from that - Nvidia, that's a pretty poor update, hang your head in shame.
