I almost always use the latest beta; hasn't given me problems yet. This applies to just about every driver.

No the last beta driver I used broke half of my games

Always, unless there is a problem, which happened once on a Radeon card, and never again.

I used a BetaMax once.

I used beta drivers twice and both times it messed up my PC. Never again...

regular drivers are buggy messes as it is more often then not.... so I have no interest in trying beta drivers unless I am desperate to fix a driver related problem

I run beta drivers when they include performance enhancements to games I play.

Your entire PC? I find that hard to believe.

I used to, years ago, when I wanted to always have the latest and greatest.

These days, I don't even upgrade my drivers unless I'm having problems with a game or if I do a fresh install of Windows.
