nvIdia on Intel??

    The problem is, we don't know if going to the device maker's site for drivers will cause problems, or not. But we can be pretty darn sure the drivers on the computer maker's site will work with no problems. So it depends on how comfortable you are when dealing with potential driver update failures.

    Again, was just sharing my personal experience is all. Not trying to start a big debate. I am very comfortable messing with drivers and a bit obsessive about keeping them up to date especially graphics drivers. Have a good one!

    I agree, and I am not trying to start a big debate either. And I agree about graphics drivers but I will add that most updates involve support for "new" games and not necessarily to "fix" existing problems. So reading the change log is also a good idea to see if the update affects you, or not. And to that, concerning BIOS updates, I don't normally recommend upgrading them, unless (1) they fix a problem you are experiencing, (2) they address a security issue (rare) or (3), current BIOS is corrupt (also rare). Most BIOS updates simply add support for new CPUs or other new hardware.
