Default Stable/Best Nvidia Driver for GTX 1080Ti with Windows7-64bit

Hope someone can help me with advice as to best/stable Nvidia Driver for GTX 1080Ti with Windows7-64bit. I have heard that Nvidia driver version 391.24 is pretty good but need more choices.

Also can anyone tell me is Geforce Experience software deselectable with latest drivers in the 400 series version range. I hate this software as it is very problematic so when I install a driver I deselect it and do a custom install without it. I heard somewhere that the very latest drivers do not give you a choice upon install to get rid of Geforce Experience...it is mandatory. Is this true?

I wonder if i write here that 388.71 or 399.07 are superb so you have 3 to choose from now. I haven't tried that 391.24 one so i can't tell but will you only choose on rumors that they are good?
And now that have 3, do you still need more choices and which one will you pick and if you pick one, you picked it based on what?


(i don't want to be rude but i would like to point out the sillyness of your question, certainly the "i need more choices" part).

I have a GTX 1080Ti and have been using the 411.70 drivers for the last 2 weeks or so. I also do a custom install and if any else is loaded, IE: Genforce Experience I just remove it. So far the 411.70 drivers are working just fine for me.

good ol' 388.71 keeps coming up again and again....will run with it and if any issues come up can try some other suggestions. thanks for input everybody but I am really wanting input from users of Windows7-64bit not users of a 1080Ti with Windows10-64 bit...that is a substantial difference in configuration.

glad to hear that Nvidia have listened and allowed GF Experience to be deselected upon install of latest drivers. it is troublesome software and i like to avoid it...Gary

Yeah W7-64bit...much more stable than Windows 10. End of life for W7-64bit is January 2020; but do not be surprised if Microsoft extend that date. W7-64bit is biggest OS used in China so with their numbers in the picture Microsoft may just extend support for W7 past January 2020.
This is what happened to Windows XP...support was extended even further due to sheer numbers of users in China on XP. I shall stick with W7 until my MOBO dies then shall go for W10...hopefully that will be sometime after 2020 and hopefully W10 will be much more sorted out then....we hope.
