    Nvidia will not update the 670 any longer?

    The Quadro FX2800M in my old laptop would only run on the 340 drivers as well. Anything after that wouldn't work. That is about 10 years old now, IIRC.

    Exactly, that doesn't make sense. My 750 Ti still accepts new drivers I'll see if my GTX 660 will install them.

    I appreciate your taking the time and trouble Boo.

    Mind you everything up to 415 now installs for me and looks good. They just won't give me a rez above 1920.
    340's alone can give me 4K

    Good point!
    If the drivers install then your card is still supported. Not sure why it doesn't support 4K with newer drivers?

    Something else:
    Mint Recommends the 390's. It ID's my card properly and then tells me to use the 390's

    GO FIGURE!
