I just installed W7 on my new SSD and also installed a new Sparkle 560ti but the latest drivers for it are 275.33 and Nvidia's latest drivers are 296.10

I'm wondering if I could just use the latest Nvidia drivers and not worry so much that it isn't from Sparkle. I did have the latest driver for my 460 running the 560ti but idk if that would just cause Bsods and stuff.

Thanks for the help

Yes installing nvidia's newest driver is better than the one sparkle provides. Nvidia's driver is the same as the one sparkle provided on their disks. You probably won't get a BSOD unless your GPU is faulty or some other component is faulty.

You should always make sure you've got the latest drivers. I believe it's as simple as that.
