Default Update Drivers?

JUST COMPLETED MY FIRST NEW RIG 4 WKS AGO..EVERYTHING RUNNING FINE,,,I HAVEN'T UPDATED ANY DRIVERS YET,,,
MY THEORY IS IF ITS NOT BROKEN DONT MESS WITH IT...
DOES THAT THEORY APPLY TO HARDWARE? OR SHOULD I UPDATE MY MOBO DRIVERS,,,VIDEO CARD DRIVERS,,,AND HOW IMPORTANT IS UPDATING BIOS DRIVERS?


ASUS K8N MOBO
ATHLON 3000+ (S754)
1GB KINGSTON RAM
80GB WESTERN DIG HDD
ATI NVIDIA 9550 VID CARD
ANTEC TRU BLUE 480W

You're right. If it aint broken, don't fix it.

But you could install the latest graphics drivers to increase gaming performance.

I don't think chipset drivers will increase performance. I never installed them myself.

You shouldn't update your BIOS.

(PS: See if your CAPS-LOCK is enabled )
