Other Driver Update Sites

I am running Windows XP and while surfing the net some pop-ups show that my drivers need updating. Most of them are updated to 2001. A scan button was on the pop-up (something like a pop-up anyway) so i scanned my computer and i found out that almost every dirver i had needed updating. But to update them all i need to pay so i ignored it. Then i went to Windows update and only found that 2 driver updates were available. The pop-up listed about 8 updates. I was confused, i thought that Microsoft was the only company to provide the LATEST updates for drivers on my PC. Are there any other sites that provide free and safe driver updates, or is microsoft the only one?
please state some so i can get the drivers updated. THANKS

Ignore the popups there money makers.

If your PC is running fine then why update?

However go directly to the manufa. drivers website is the best. AS MS's drivers are basic geberic ones.

Example your graphics card is?
