Updated my Vista SLI yesterday, no issues. Have not done the SLI XP machine yet.

No problems here with mine either, if anything some games are getting slightly high fps.

Contains the new Phyisx contol panel for cards that can use it. Makes a huge difference on both SLI machines.

Thank you

Well if your graphics card is working and you have no major issues in games then no you dont.

You don't have to, but your card can take advantage of the new Physix driver, and as you are playing Crysis, I think it would be worth it.

Hi,do I uninstall the old graphics card driver first,then install this software?.

Nowadays manufacturers generally supply downloadable drivers in the form of self-extracting files that simply need to be downloaded and double-clicked. Increasingly drivers distributed in this way even take care of uninstalling superseded driver versions,so there is no need to uninstall the old driver first.
Go to nvidia.com or ati.com and get to the driver download area. Navigate to the drivers for your card, and download the most recent drivers. When they're saved somewhere on your pc, double click on the driver installer, and just follow the instructions.

As mrwoowoo say's, just overwrite them:
