I disagree NVIDIA totally supports the the 5xxx cards with the 96.85 Vista
drivers. See the following Link:
I beleive they will get back to one Vista driver release when they have
completly restored all of the functionality using the PureVideo and other
code in the 6xxx, 7xxx, and 8xxx which which is not contained in the 5xxx
chipes with the graphics enhacements available in Vista. However there is
functionality available for the 5xxx cards in the 86.85 release that is not
availble for newer chips starting with the 97.45 release of higher.
