9xx nVidia drivers vs 8xx

    I've stayed with the 8xx nVidia driver because
    it allows custom resolutions ... like 1280x800
    in place of unreadable native 1680x1050. Very
    few, if any, games will run at 1680x1050, but
    nearly all will do fine at 1280x800. I tried a 9xx
    driver, but it would not allow me to run coolbits
    or set custom resolutions at all. Card is BFG
    GF 7900 GTO. Has this changed, or is there
    a new coolbits for the 9xx drivers now?
    Also, the 9xx driver blocks HDTV resolutions
    my ATI Theater Pro 550e tries to use. I have
    no problems there with the 8xx driver. Why
    did nVidia do this ?

    I'm running 93.81 with my XFX 7800GT. Coolbits 2.0 and custom resolutions
    are both fine in the Classic control panel (Coolbits didn't work properly
    with 93.71).

    Can't confirm that. Every game that supports widescreen resolutions
    should work just fine in 1680x1050...
