Question GTX 470!

Stupid and really quick question! I have this Nvidia gtx 470 card The drivers i installed from the CD are older then whats one the Nvidia website. Do i download the drivers from Nvidia or do i go to the "EVGA" website to download drivers.

Also now that i already have these drivers installed is this the correct process to update them.
1) Uninstall the drivers from the device manager.
2) Restart
3) Install latest version from the web! (nvidia)
4) SUCCESS!!!

OR is it possible to go under the device manager and hit update driver then select the latest version that i downloaded from the web (Nvidia).

Nvidia

I never had any problems just installing the new drivers, without uninstalling the previous driver.

1) download new driver from Nvidia
2) run the exe
3) success!!
