You should be alright.

No problem, I was reading up on updates and developer seeds, and said hmmm, today is Tuesday, I wonder if the update will be released today. Boom, there it is, on software update. Nice.

At least the pre Final SN Leo Graphics update made my VMare Fusion stall (Vmware Panic Opengl.... in log). Fusion didnt crash but must be killed.
I will wait for Nvidia GPU + Vmware Fusion users until i install that, because non of my games (also Steam) worked much faster on my 8800GTX with the Pre Final update.

My EVGA GTX 285 is still not fully functioning after this graphics update :< Starcraft 2 and Portal are slowwwwww compared to Snow Leopard 10.6.3. My Build is Core i7 920 + GA-EX58-UD5.

Just a bit of information on this, it updates the Nvidia drivers to: 19.5.9f02

CUDA will prompt for an update with these drivers (if you have CUDA installed) but an update is not available as of yet.
Just thought i'd share that info in case someone here needs CUDA.

What if you have older, 8800GT graphics ? Did anyone tried with that?

Thanks!

Apple has fixed that problem. Final SN Leo graphics update didnt stall VMWARE (like the pre final update).

No QE/CI on my 4870 X2 after the update.
Applying Netkas' Exotic patch for 10.6.4 doesn't help or hurt.

May do a 10.6.4 combo update and revert to original setup.
