Best nVidia drivers
Okay, so the past few drivers, as we all know, have had a myriad of issues, the 17* drivers especially. Heck, I'm using ArchLinux with 169.12 and I still have a couple of issues.
So here's the question: What are the 'best' Linux drivers in recent memory? By that I mean drivers that are up to par performance-wise and are relatively bug free.
And yes, this was posted on the nVidia forums as well.
Ditto. I agree.

Turn on Vsync. Tearing is caused by the video card updating the framebufer in the middle of a screen draw.
