As far as I know, the 6xx series is not supported be XP. Only W7. You will need to go the Linux route I BELIEVE. May be wrong though.

When searching beta on NVidia.com it said the 301.42 was good for XP64. The release lists it in the supported software section... have you tried it yet?
http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/44963

This Release 300 driver includes drivers designed for the following Microsoft® operating
systems:
 Microsoft Windows® XP
• Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 Update Rollup2
• Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
• Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004
• Windows XP Professional
• Windows XP Home Edition
• Windows XP Professional x64 Edition

It was good that NVidia released a Kepler driver for XP.

I mentioned this back on the 27th May, and it was discussed prior to recommending the 301.42 driver.

"The recommended 301.42 WHQL driver should support a GTX690 on XP - at least it says it does at the NVidia site.
Earlier WHQL and Beta drivers didn't support Kepler on XP"

Got it. Was just seeking a positive confirm since "should", "does", and "vendor assertions" are sometimes different. Since it is a non-trivial aspect of my new build, I opted to "measure twice".

Thank you to all for replying.
