Driver update quick question

Built my new system today. Installed the Drivers for my GTX 580 off the CD that came with the box. I now want to update my drivers from the EVGA website and I just want to make sure I am doing it right since I'm no longer using XP, but Win 7.

From the CD I was able to install the Drivers, 3D Vision, HD Audio, PhysX System, EVGA Precision. (not sure what the PhysX is)

Thanks for any help!

I believe I have several Options

1) Device Manager > Display adapters > - right-click NVIDIA GTX 580 > Update Driver Software

2) Device Manager > Display adapters > Uninstall

3) Control Panel > Uninstall a program > - Nvidia Graphics Drivers 266.58

4) Double click 270.61-desktop-win7-winvista-64bit-english-whql.exe and let the Win 7 Gods handle the process

5) Some other really good method, running driver clean pro and then installing the new drivers.
