Default EVGA Drivers Vs Nvidia Drivers

Hey guys, trying to figure out which drivers to go with with my new 6800 GT video card i just got, PCI-E, is the disc drivers (EVGA) better than the site nVidia ones? on nVidia.com?

I also know that if they are I need to uninstall the EVGA ones before installing the nVidia ones correct?

so they have no difference between the two?

Also, would i use the X16 drivers from nVidia for a nforce4 MoBo with a x16 PCI-E video card, or would i use the AMD ones? sicne it has a x2 processor in it?

If you ever want to know which is better, install one set, run a performace test and then run a performance test on the other set and use the drivers that have the best performace.
