Importance of new drivers

Recommended Posts

I've finally been able to get my system to be rock solid stable. Hasn't crashed on me yet. Only issue I've been running into is the cold-boot one, and I'm planning on getting a new power supply to resolve it.

 

My question is -- Would it be worth installing updated mobo and nforce drivers at the risk of reducing stability or damaging my system?

 

Is there a changelog for new driver versions?

 

Right now AMD's CPUInfo program lists my bios version as the following:

Nvidia - 42302e31 Phoenix - Award WorkstationBIOS v6.00PG

 

I have a Raid 0 array using the following nForce driver:

5.10.2600.667 5/1/2006

Usually it doesn't pay to update a driver UNLESS you are experiencing a problem with your current one. Sometimes a later driver will prove less stable than an earlier one in specific situations. I think most people have fantasies of better performance with newer drivers but that's very rarely the case ...

 

I agree with Robc1880 ...

This is how you find your bios version

That i think is the latest Nvidia Nvraid bios, and the only way to update it would to be to flash a bios with a newer version or use cbrom, neither of which are gonna be much use to you ;) seeing as you have the latest.

What he said... :D

 

My video card drivers are the only ones I update when new ones come out.. Even then the difference in minimal for the most part, usually once your video card is fairly matured the drivers dont normally do much except fix bugs in games.
