    GTX580 is a Geforce GPU?
    What i've understood, all of the GeForce cards have Windows 8 drivers.

    295.73 is the first official set of drivers to be compatible with Windows 8 CP.

    You need to download the Nvidia 295.73 WHQL drivers from the Nvidia site. The Nvidia drivers that are automatically installed when installing Windows 8 are out of date. Use one of the links above to download and install the 295.73 WHQL drivers.

    It has, but only with basic functions. Try launching good old Quake 3!! No OpenGL.
    The new WHQL driver from Nvidia fixes that along with PhysX and some other things.

    I don't think it supports OpenGL yet though, despite the brief mention in the release notes, or at least as completely as in Win7. An even newer version (the first in the 9.x series) was pushed out on Thursday, and it doesn't either. Angry Birds, for example, spits up an error about OpenGL, where on Win7 it ran. Likewise, an obscure program called Algodoo manages to run, but is so slow as to be unusable.

    I just reinstalled Windows 8 and left it to its own devices so to speak...and it loaded it's own Nvidia driver/control panel etc. via Windows Update (set to get updates for everything using Microsoft Update) the first time I ran it...296.17...one which I can't even find on Nvidia's download pages. Works fine although I don't game so I'd leave that judgement to others.
