Personally, I dislike beta drivers, that's not to say there is anything wrong with them, just a personal preference. I am finding the 275.33 to be stable. You could always give the beta drivers a shot and see how they work for you though, can't hurt.

My son was having "video driver has stopped working" messages every so often while playing SWTOR (280.26 drivers). I updated my son's drivers to the 290.53 beta drivers, and everything has worked good since.

His specs:

E6600 Core2Duo @ 2.4Ghz CPU
8 GB DDR2 Kingston HyperX RAM
Windows 7 HP
240 GB HDD @ 7200 RPM

Hoping there is an updated driver soon with some kind of optimization. Fleet and Warzones are slamming his system down to the mid teens or single digits FPS.

had the same prob w/the 280.26 driver (GTS 360m) not a fan of beta drivers but tried the 290.53 and have had a huge improvement in fps and stability in game and out of game no longer getting nvidia based bsod's.
