I don't believe they are out of date: I am using the 173 version nvidia Driver, and it is working fine for me. I do not have 8.10 yet, but after looking n the forums many say that the newest driver, 177, does not work well, so ver. 173 should work fine

I'm not sure why anyone even uses Envy. For NVidia cards the install is really easy. The latest driver is 180.06 beta. The latest stable driver is 177.82.

More info is available in this forum. http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=14. The NVidia linux driver developers frequently post there.

I'm currently using the 180.06 betas. They are very fast and trouble free.
