how often do you update your graphics card driver?

I updated to 13.9b when they came out, it broke GW2 for me, and I rolled back to 13.4, which I'm still on. I'll update it sometime when I feel like I need to, which may be a while.

Last time I updated my video drivers Morrowind stopped working for me - even after re-installing the game a few times.

I sorta regret updating lol.

When 8.1 comes out, hopefully things will just sorta work again after a fresh reformat.

as soon as newer drivers are released because nvidia doesnt break everything after updating


I'm a fan of Nvidia, but come on, the last few driver releases say "hi".

I only update when I absolutely have to. I have the worst luck with something going wrong every time I try and having to rollback.

Whenever there's an improvement in one of the games I play, I'll update. If not, I usually just wait.

I think my current drivers is over a year old for my GTX 680, no reason to update yet it seems, that and Nvidia's latest drivers have been a bit of a mess as far as fellow Nvidia users have told me.

Not often. I read the release notes and check guru3d for others experiences before updating but as most updates on AMD are for the 7000 series I'm a few releases behind now.
