In Memoriam: ChrisRay, 1982 - 2010 (NVNews)

I saw this earlier over @ NVIDIA's forums and wanted to pass it on. Some of you may have exchanged PM's or posts with Chris in the past. He was very active in the NVIDIA community.

NVIDIA SLI Profiles (MODDED) Updater - Updated!

Well, since NV recently released the 196.34 Beta driver I figured it was time for another update. I grabbed the SLI Profiles and have updated modded batch updater. Again, this is to be used if you are having issues with enabling SLI on newer game releases with your current driver.
