    Phoronix: NVIDIA 169.12 Linux Display Driver

    We know NVIDIA has been working on a new Linux display driver release, with the GeForce 9 series having been introduced just this past week, and today a new driver release has arrived for Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD. However, this new 169.12 display driver doesn't introduce support for the GeForce 9600GT and its official changes are limited to maintenance items.

      If it does not you could try the 171.x - at least the Win drivers used to be 171+.
