Updating drivers

Recommended Posts

Hi

I`m attaching a short list of outdated drivers. Questions: Is there a point in updating those drivers? If yes, what are the benefits? Thanks.

I agree in usual terms with the above two posters, I have had to roll some drivers back after the upgrade (usually nVidia or switching to earlier versions of Atheros when a dLink driver is cruddy)

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

Do the performance improvements related to the above mentioned driver updates worth the risk of some screwed up driver?
