NVIDIA has released another set of beta Forceware drivers to the Geforce 8, 9, and 200 series owning masses, bumping the version number to 177.79.

There’s a healthy list of fixes and updates for games such as Call of Duty 4, Counter-Strike, Civilization 4, and Crysis, as well as a few fixes for multi-display users and a few more for multi-GPU users.

Also noteworthy is that GPU temperature monitoring and overclocking controls are now supported when you install NVIDIA’s System Tools software.

Finally, unofficially at least, is that Folding@Home processing is apparently now supported on the Geforce 8 and 9 series out-of-the-box, without any need to modify .inf files or such.
