Q: Are you working on new GeForce FX drivers for Vista?
A: GeForce FX GPUs will be supported from the ForceWare Release 95 driver until the end-of-life of the product.

The news on 2nd March indicated that new drivers for fx series graphics cards would be released at the end of 2007 so there is a possibility of new drivers but not in the near future. Anyway, use v96.85 and you shouldn't have any problems.
