Driver Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm currently running a gigabyte gtx 470 super oc and on the giga web page they provide you with the 197.75 drivers... Do they really want you to use these drivers? Is there an advantage to them specific to their card or do they just lack updating..
That's all,
Nick

Download the latest nVidia drivers, they are the most up to date, the ones shipped with your VGA are probably from 1800.

Well I am using the latest 266.58 drivers at the moment. But I have read a few places that you should use the drivers from the card manufacturer web page. Just wanted to make sure but deep within i think i knew the answer

Normally they contain extra crap other than the drivers themselves, plus they are seldom updated, I stronlgy advice you to use drivers from nVidia (or Xtreme G if you want them custom).
