If you're running a 32-bit operating system and are using an Nvidia GPU you better start thinking about upgrading to 64-bit if you want to continue to get game ready drivers. Yes, you read that correctly. Nvidia will no longer provide drivers for 32-bit operating systems after the 390 driver release. Not a surprise to

Actually its a pretty dumb/lazy/cheap move since it's the same driver just compiled for 32-bit. Cut backs in development but yet prices of their cards keep rising. And for those with 32-bit systems they are f'd. Not everyone uses their pc for gaming and their need for 64-bit is not essential or required. Lots who buy pre-built PC's will be f'd. What it means is people with 32-bit systems, either work pc's or casual users will lose out. Just another reason not to buy nvidia equipped pc's and for people to look more at AMD and Intel.
