asus nforce drivers or nvidia drivers

  pookie 10:36 24 Dec 2003


windows xp home, 9700 ati, asus a7n8x-x mobo with onboard sound, 1024 Mb ram.
I got the above mobo about 1 month ago. i did reformat and installed using the asus mobo nforce2 cd drivers. however the nvidia website has nforce2 drivers version 3.13 dated november 03 (i think my asus cd was an older version). the asus website does not have any recent driver issues.

should I install new drivers from nvidia or stick to the asus ones? if i should use the nvidia ones do i just install them over my existing ones or do i need to reformat and reinstall xp and then use the new nvidia nforce 2 drivers?

many thanks

hi - the first time i downloaded it from the 'primary' site. i've re downloaded it from a 'mirror' site and it has download as a .exe file and has a 'proper' icon.

i'll create a restore point and just double click on the downloaded nvidia.exe?

many thanks

oh no - how do i uninstall my current nforce drivers - is it just from add/remove programs in control panel?

hi - just as an update i uninstalled the old asus nforce drivers and installed the downloaded nvidia ones. i have to say benchmarks don't show any increase but more importantly they don't show any decrease and the system has been stable.
