Ahh ok. I'm running a GTX 260M on Windows 7 x64. I'm pretty sure that the biggest difference in the version number would be because i'm running a mobile chip. There is a 196.21 driver for the GTX 260. Latest stable release for my chip is 195.62, but STO seems to think it's out of date. Maybe the spec checker can't tell the difference between a normal and a mobile chip.

I am getting the same issue.

There is a new Driver out which you have to manually search for (i.e. find what series your card is etc)
While if you choose the auto update/check on Nvidia it will say you are up to date.

Unfortunately the new Driver is only available for PC's there is no Driver I believe out yet for the Laptop series graphics card as the new patch says it does not support the series I have.

I have a NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT - The Notebook Version.

Guess I will just have to wait till Nvidia release it..

I just got the new 196.21 drivers myself (Recently went back to Win Vista 64-Bit now that Win 7 RC1 is going down), and I'm still getting this failed system specs check even though I have the latest drivers for it now.

Same issue with 6400M. NVidia website says up to date (195.62 on XP sp3). Having to run at half-resolution in game, but that could also be due to server load. It seems like every other patch causes me graphics headaches.

I just patched and then got the warning too. I have an nVidia Geforce 9600 GTX+ running on Win7 x64. I was running drivers that were from back in September. After getting the warning today, I updated to whatever the most recent drivers are via Windows Update and I did not receive the warning the next time I ran the game.

Getting the warning in the first place was odd since I can run the game with the highest settings (no antialiasing) and it runs great.
