Nvidia driver update.....worth it ??

  Baslla321 16:13 03 Aug 2004

I have Nvidia Geforce FX5200 128MB Video card version 52.16. As I have updated to Direct X 9.0c I wonder if it is worth updating my graphic driver from version 52.16 to the newest one V.61.77 ? I am also not sure whether this is the right driver for my card although it says its for XP pro or are they all compatable? your comments please.

I'm still using NVidia 53.03.I get reminded by Win Updates that there is a newer driver out,but when I last tried using this one my games ran slightly slower and looked "grainy" If your present driver works fine,updating it isn't neccessary.If your uncertain about the newer driver,DON'T use it,you might end up with a problem.

Many thanks. I always think that there might be a further improvement in how the video & or pictures will look. Mine are clear and very 3D, so will just stay put. Rgds

If everything is working ok then leave well alone.
