Default Nvidia Geforce FX5500 256mb Drivers

What are the best drivers to use for an Nvidia Geforce Fx5500? I have the latest forceware drivers and they seem to be working just fine, but I have heard that the "56.72" drivers are most stable. What do you guys think?

notice I said stable, which in nvidia case that always mean their MS certified version.

nvidia has a history of making drivers, that speed up gaming, but slows up your computers or they won't play video files

Ah, I see, yeah I have noticed that with the newer ones when I play videos in my WMP it jumps up and down rapidly for some reason.
