NVIDIA have release a non-beta driver version after some time. Geforce ForceWare 182.06 (Release 182) drivers are compatible with GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, and 200-series desktop GPUs and are WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) certified. In addition to OpenGL 3.0 support, these drivers also contain the latest version of NVIDIA PhysX System software. Direct download links for 32/64 bit driver versions for Windows Vista and XP can be found towards the end of this article.

Note that I’ve not had the time to test the new drivers with any of the games installed. However if you are playing newer titles such as FEAR 2 (up to 10% performance increase over ForceWare 181.22), Mirror’s Edge and Dawn of  War 2, v182.06 drivers are recommended.

All are direct download links from official NVIDIA servers.

    cinowell,
    I'm not sure mate. Although Geforce 6100 is supported, the Go version is not included in the supported VGA list. And NVIDIA driver search says ForceWare release 179 is latest driver for geforce go 7 series (go 6 series not available in search). So there may be incompatibilities but im not sure.
