    Does Farcry really need 53.03 for nVidia cards ?

    I was going to try the demo tonight to see if I liked the game or not. But it says I have to use the 53.03 drivers and well I do not want to have to change to them only to change back to the newest ones again. So does it work with the newer drivers or only 53.03 ?
