Drivers Tags: Graphics Cards Drivers Graphics Last response: March 14, 2010 2:59 PM in Graphics & Displays Share alidan March 14, 2010 9:07:45 AM should i always update the drives to the most recent ones? or should i hold out on updating until a need comes for it? and so you know, i'm thinking if it ant broke don't fix it. fixing things that didn't need fixing in the past really screwed me over quite a few times. so im wondering if i should update the moment they come out and i know they are good, or should i wait until a problem comes up?

I just don't want to mess up with driver. As long as your VGA is great for gaming or anything else, then don't worry about that. Sometime, the recent driver is not always stable. Well, that's just me. | Report abuse alidan March 14, 2010 2:54:10 PM what can drivers actually improve? aside from stability issues. and is there some place that can tell me what the most stable drivers are? im getting 5770 tuesday, and would love to know. | Report abuse jryan388 Graphics card Authority March 14, 2010 2:57:23 PM Newer drivers usually improve performance slightly, especially on newer cards, but only a few percent increase. Get your drivers from the amd website. | Report abuse alidan March 14, 2010 2:59:29 PM lets say from when the 5770 came out to now, how much of an increase performance wise are we looking at? | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Drivers> Related ressources: ForumAsus 660ti DCU2 SLI, 680 DCU2 TOP or 7970 Matrix ForumHave to re-install Nvidia Drivers at every reboot ForumAsus m50v video drivers ForumUninstall 6800 drivers Forum[Solved] Best drivers for ATI 5xxx Series ForumATI 5970 drivers problem Forum4850 display drivers problem ForumAsus eah5670 linux drivers ForumCan't install drivers and CCC ForumNvidia Users Beware of new drivers!!
