Actually the newest are 5.10 he
ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/nForce/5.10/

I found this description:

"Not very detailed but the driver versions have changed like so:

GART driver 3.77 (WHQL) -- GART driver 4.36 (WHQL)
IDE NVIDIA driver 4.12 (WHQL) -- IDE NVIDIA driver 4.46 (WHQL)

Also these little release notes:
# Unified drivers with support for nForce, nForce2, and nForce3 products,
including support for dual-processor systems.
# General compatibility fixes
# Audio Driver Improvements
* Addressed audio issues in numerous games and applications
# Storage Driver Improvements:
* RAID Morphing
* Improved RAID Interface
* RAID spans both SATA and PATA devices
* RAID 0, 1, and 0+1
* Improved handling of various storage devices

I installed the IDE drivers and found a 10% decrease in performance using HD
Tach to benchmark my drives. Rolled back to the stock MX Win XP Sp2 drivers.
Reports are that the sound drivers are greatly improved but I don't use them
myself.
HTH,
Bob
