So does this mean I can get the advantages of Purevideo HD on an 8500gt running XP (not vista)? I have an 8500gt on order and read that Vista is required for Purevideo HD, but I would much rather run XP to reduce the bloat.

EDIT: Nevermind...it looks like I would need http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_158.22.html for XP, but they still don't support Purevideo HD. I may be stuck using vista for my client box w/the 8500gt.

So.. any feedback on how well these new drivers work in XP? I'm guessing it doesn't help address any of the HD stutter issues we're all well-versed in ... ?

Umm.... it looks like Nvidia may have pulled the drivers... they're no longer on their website for download.

Actually, I think what happened is that they released them as public and they are meant to be beta. If you click the beta links on the main site, they take you to them. I must have caught it at the right/wrong moment initially.

FTR - I am running these on my HTPC in the theater room. I have not had any issues to report, but have only put 3-4 hours or so of use on them.
