Hi, I would like to know do you download the drivers easily from nvidia Geforce experience??
Because the support told me to install just the old asus one in support page.

Thanks

I installed Geforce experience once...it was rubbish so I removed it and never used it again.

I just download the driver from the NVIDIA driver page http://www.nvidia.es/Download/index.aspx

And do a custom install selecting only driver or driver and PhysX if version of PhysX has changed.

If you run into problems with driver installs etc. use DDU https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/550192/geforce-drivers/wagnard-tools-ddu-gmp-tdr-manipulator-new-cpu-core-analyzer-updated-12-30-2017-/ in safe mode to clear out all old junk first.

I practically always use GFE to download drivers these days. No issues here.

Thank you for the answer! I know sometime GE experience sometimes is not good, but from some point of views I like it.
Anyway i've used GE and the driver is working well.

PS. Thanks for the correction of the title!

OK cool...glad to hear it's working better these days...I guess I'm a bit old fashioned in my driver update superstitions...:o

I've had times when it won't retrieve optimal settings for my games and tells me to try again later. Sometime later, it usually works.

I did uninstall it once when I was having some kind of color glitch in Tekken 7. Someone online suggested it was probably because of GFE. I did uninstall it and the problem did go away. But I reinstalled it recently after my latest system rebuild, and Tekken 7 is working fine.

Anyway, not sold on GFE, but I have it installed and on at the moment.
