    nvidia windows 8 update is ready ... go get it


    no crashes so far with the nvidia windows 8 update
    i was getting the same crashes as most on this forum.
    it seem to me to be a video driver problem just on the way it was locking up
    another strange think i found on installing win 8 is that it change my audio output ie. my front speakers became my back and back my front with no sub woofer or centre .. reinstalled software all good now
    so far i am liking windows 8 it has improved handling of my pc . as yet i havent played a game and i will try it soon

    Is the release preview the same as the consumer preview? It states it should not be used with the developer preview.
