A week ago I upgraded my graphics card to a Nvidia 8800gt.The next day when using Filehippo it said there was a driver update available 178.24 which I installed.

Driver Max is a new program on my computer and recommends various driver updates. One of these is for the the graphics card driver and suggests updating to version 180.48.

Not sure whether to go ahead and update or leave things as they are any advice much appreciated.

Tony.

Generally speaking djbenny would be right, However driver updates are issued for a reason, more often than not to address a particular issue encountered in a particular game, or just to improve overall frame rates. It's worth looking at the driver to see what issues it resolves. I always update to the latest version (beta's excluded) as it's such a simple procedure, and I have never encountered a problem.
