setup settings

hi all,
I was told earlier to download the 77.76XG drivers which i have done. As they are going to be used in conjunction with a PNY Verto 6200A 128Mb, can someone explain the settings during setup and what they do. There's 'Series 6/7', 'GeForce FX', 'Reborn' and 'Laptops' options. Can someone explain what each of these options does please. I understand some of them but as i've never had a decent card before, i want to know what they do.

Thanks,
Scott.

What about the other options? Such as reborn, what does that do or what is it for? Is the nvidia control panel in display properties installed with these drivers?

Yes, the control panel is installed, as well as the coolbits reg hack.

They're for differant card lines, Geforce FX is the FX5xxx line, Laptops is self explanitory, and Reborn is for Geforce 3/4 gpu's I believe

Correct. I would actually not recommend the newer drivers for Geforce 3/4 however, so I see the reborn option as a little useless. The Omega 44.03 is the driver for Geforce 3 / 4 or older.
