Just a heads-up that 296.10 has been causing weird color artifacting and screen/OS freeze-ups for many GeForce GTX card users, but especially 5xx-series cards. What makes this scary is that it mimics symptoms of cards on their last legs:

Reverting to an older version such as 295.73 should work fine, until Nvidia can get this fixed.
