I have both a GTX 460 and an GTX 650 Ti Boost on two different machines. Recently I updated drivers (I tried 331.65 WHQL) and started getting systems freezes on both machines, especially every time the system would try to come out of standby ... it would freeze and have to be cold-booted. I tried rolling back to several older versions of the drivers, but for the GTX 460, only 314.07 is stable and for the GTX 650 Ti Boost, I am now testing 314.22 (every driver after that causes the freezes). I called Nvidia tech support and they are the ones who suggested that 314.07 would be stable for the GTX 460, admitting there is an issue. I am not sure how newer drivers get the WHLQ label because a huge number of people have reported/blogged about this problem with Nvidia drivers. I am scared to use an Nvidia board for my next computer.

Well I have the GTX 650 Ti running on an old Windows 8 laptop which serves as a general house work horse for the kids.
In terms of drivers I always find that updating Windows drivers (I have used this driver update software) to the latest release is a bit like rolling the dice hoping to land a double 6. I have 314.22 running stable, anything after 320 is terrible.
