How do you know he will? Do you have a GT216GLM [QuadroFX 880M] (rev a2)? Just
because many people do better with proprietary drivers does not mean everyone
will. People who use PCs for work rather than play won't necessarily notice any
difference, assuming there is any difference. With Pétùr's particular hardware
and software combination, there could be none.
