After the previous 332.21 WHQL drivers became a part of my 2014 test setup over a month ago, NVIDIA have quickly turned around a new set of WHQL drivers.  Most of these directly impact the GPU titles I test with the GTX 770s, as well as provide support for the new GTX 750, GTX 750 Ti and GTX TITAN Black GPUs.  Ryan reviewed the GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti a few days ago, with them hitting the $120 and $150 price points, battling the R7 260X and R7 265 at those price points respectively.

Highlights of the new drivers include:
