I feel a little "noob-ish" asking this question, but I am a little confused by this subject. OK, what is the difference between a "chipset" and a GPU driver? I have a rig I just built recently, it has an AMD FX 8120 8-core CPU, and runs the 990FX chipset. However, I have a Nvidia 520GT GPU. Is it still imperative that you update the chipset driver if you are updating the gpu driver? What is the difference between the 2?

Again, I would appreciate someone clearing this up for me.

The chipset driver runs all your features on the board but the GPU driver is only for the GPU. Chipset drivers are not updated regularly like GPU drivers.
