These drivers work perfectly with my card. Does there come a point when it doesn't even matter if I get the "brand-spanking new" Nvidia drivers? These newer drivers are typically aimed at newer end cards, so will I be okay staying at 295.73 forever?
Well there comes a time when the drivers may seem pointless from either a bug standpoint, or a performance standpoint. However the thing you have to realize is that the drivers are also for compatability. So if there is a new program or game u wanna run and you dont have the newest drivers, u maybe not be able to run it.
If you’re happy with the way your setups is running currently then leave it.
Consider updating drivers if and when you experience performance/compatibility issues. Unless curiosity gets the better of you
