gandalf - thats probably one of the most intelligent answers to the question of driver updates iv seen - updating drivers especially for the unknowledgeable can be very frustrating and often leave disaster in its wake.
I agree with GANDALF too. If you don't have a specific reason to update then it's best not to.
The machine I am on just now is an old 750 Duron with dual booting. I have the same OS on both systems and I use the second one to experiment with anything that takes my fancy. Over the 5 or 6 years I've installed all the MS updates and driver updates etc to this second system. On the first system, which is the one I use every day, I've updated nothing at all and ...... you've guessed it, there is absolutely no difference in performance except of course the experimental side is a bit slower to boot but you would expect that with over 500 prgs and apps and loads of rubbish installed. And ted bear is right too, updating can make things worse.
