Hardware Acceleration with new Nvidia Pascal based cards

I located the latest stable links for Nvidia drivers in the FAQ section, but those are too old to support the new Nvidia Pascal cards (GTX1050, GTX1070, GTX1080).

I tested the latest Nvidia Toolkit 8.0.61.2 and it seems to work well (using Windows 7 x64, GTX1050, MCEbuddy 2.4 beta7)

It brought my Nvidia driver version down to version 376.51

Just thought I’d give some feedback to any others using a new Nvidia card for acceleration.
