    What's up with these video drivers?

    My video card is a GeForce4 MX440 64M AGP 8x made by chaintech, not Nvidia.

    Can I still download Geforce4 drivers at Nvidia's website? It seems like the Nvidia website has more recent drivers than the chaintech website, which is who made my card...

    Who should I download from? It's for the same chipset, but different makers, but one is more recent than the other...

    I don't know about Chaintech cards, but I have an Asus G-Force 4 Ti card, and I use nVidia's drivers, I think it's the same for other cards with nVidia chips.

    Stay with chaintech. even though you can use nvidia drivers the card makers are designed differently for a reason.

    Not really.

    Nvidia drivers are weird. Best bet is to find your "generation" of detonator drivers, and use those unless you have graphical errors in certain games (*cough*doom3*cough*).

    My old GeForce4 Ti4200 performed best with detonator 41.x drivers (the most modern version for that generation).
