    I installed the beta driver, and if I was correct before about the 3D components causing problems in Crysis 3, the beta seems to have corrected it. I was able to finish the game without any freezing.

    Hi

    I'm running 320.49 it released on 7/1/2013.

    nVidia now has a utility named Geforce Experience that keeps track of everything related to you video card, and will check and update your drivers.

    It will automaticly set some newer game preferences.

    Mike
