Okay, so I'm a bit new in building up a new gaming PC. I have a question regarding graphics card drivers.

I've been seeing videos and post that not to use drivers in the box, download from site instead. why?
What will be the effect of using driver/drivers from site instead of the driver included in the box?
Should I do that even though I won't overclock myself and will only buy factory overclocked card?

Some newbie questions over here. Please find time to answer. thanks!
