Hello all -
Guys over on the Netkas forums have reverse engineered the NVIDIA Web Driver updater and acquired the package to 10.9.1 NVIDIA web drivers.
Not sure if this link has been posted here already, or if NVIDIA will take this package down, but here it is. As always, these drivers are experimental, and 100% beta at the moment, but I can confirm functionality on both my Mac Pro and Hackintosh both running a GTX 660 2GB OC.

This is also an OpenCL, GL, and Crash fix for GK110B based GPUs.

Happy Hacking!

Have tested this with great success. The problem with the driver is that you lose CUDA support. But on the netkas forum is also a small simple hack that makes it possible to use both CUDA and OpenCL: D
Tested with gtx780 REV.B chip on Mavericks 10.9.1

Do you have a link? Cannot find anything.

I'm using a GTX 580 with GraphicsEnabler=Yes but getting very poor performance from it. Final Cut Pro X is very laggy and i'm getting just 18fps on Cinebench. Are these new drivers likely to improve things? Thanks.
