    FYI to all - nVidia 304.48 beta drivers do NOT work with Sid Meier's Civilization V in DirectX 11 mode.

    I just got the new expansion and it kept crashing upon launch. People all over the Internet found these drivers to be the culprit.

    confirmed, downloaded the beta drivers last night and can't launch the game at all, crashes with the error Civilizationv_dx11.exe

    Have mini dump files if needed.

    Not trying to sound to harsh here, but beta drivers are test.

    May be nice to let Nvidea know about the issues also?

    Oh, totally agreed. And I think nVidia ought to know by now, as the Steam forums were full of complaints about this. Also, I posted a comment about this, as did others, on Guru3D, where nVidia developers visit.
