Default updating video card drivers

is it worth the time to uninstall your current video card drivers and remove them from registry and installing the newest video card drivers everytime their are new video card drivers? If your not having any issues, then why bother?

I dont ever really bother uninstalling the old. In fact, the only time I really bother with new drivers is if I reinstall Windows, or I run into problems with an app/game.

As I see it, uninstalling drivers is only really important when you are swapping hardware (ie:Nvidia vid card with an ATi or vice versa).

Just upgrading to the new driver should not give you any issues
