how often do you update your graphics card driver?

AMD doesn't support the 4xxx series anymore so not in a year or so.


This. I use unofficial drivers though with updated dx9 drivers and etc they include in the newer drivers but never in the legacy. http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=372799


Do these add any new features or optimizations that are noticeable?

I update as soon as GeForce Experience gives me a notification. I used to be more careful with drivers, but I stopped caring too much because I haven't been experiencing any issues as of late.


This.

I think most driver updates still improve the performance of my card on at least some games, so I usually update. Never had a problem yet, and if I do, it's easy enough to roll back.

Well that really worked well. I might as well just uninstall my driver and reinstall because crap's corrupt now.

Rarely, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". I would rather have stability than a few extra fps here and there (which is why I will probably stick with 314.22 for at least another few driver releases).

I avoid updating until there's a strong reason to, usually necessity.

I update when the latest stable driver is out and I'm aware.

Rarely.

I went 9800 to 460, where I'm at now. About due for an upgrade, though.

When I clean my pc, occasionally.

I never do.

Ever.

I get the latest when I first install my computer, thats it. Almost EVERY time I have updated them later, it caused issues, small ones, or big ones, often needing to do a system restore. And thats with Nvidia cards. It also (last I tried) never really did a "good", "clean" install. And maybe I just never knew how to do one, because it just never works right.

well i have battleifeld 4 pre-ordered, so for the beta I have been using the bf4 recc drivers by Nvidia.

I only upgrade when the driver has been updated for a specific new game i need it for.
