Cool, now to sit back and wait for those intrepid souls who bravely install newly released drivers and tell us if it's worth the hassle. Anyone?...Anyone?...Bueller?...Anyone?

These drivers are great for COD. Played a good long hour and a half session with them last night without the regular 4.10 lockups and issues, though I still suspect there is something funny going on with punkbuster because there were a (very) few number of odd lag spike sequences here and there.
Some other good news about these drivers, at least with COD, they seem to manage texture memory better. I am able to run Extra textures in CoD on the environment variable whearas before it would chug as it loaded unused textures, and on 256mb cards you'll see an even greater improvement. Half Life 2 stress test also saw a frame rate bump.
I like these better than the 4.9s or 4.10s for IL2, and they look better overall, but the 4.7s still seem the smoothest. Still, nothing seems to help the netplay much. But yeah, if you play CoD (and oh how much fun that is) get these ASAP soldier!
