Default 6800 GT drivers?

I've got a XFX 6800gt and was wondering should I use the drivers on the disc? I heard it's better to download them off the net and some are better for overclocking etc.

Opinions, any particular drivers?

It's rarely good to use the drivers off the CD, because those tend to be outdated. They're only good if you're rebuilding/building a machine and can't be connected to the net.

Go to NVIDIA's website for the GPU drivers. For the card itself, I would first check out the manuf's website for drivers. They may have some proprietary junk to use.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
