Hi guys ..

I have a MSI GeForce FX-5600 for my graphic card. There are 3 options for drivers:-

1) Nvidia's own driver
2) MSI driver
3) Microsoft update website driver

Which is the best or recommended to be used? I am kinda in doubt here .. but right now I'm using Nvidia's own driver.

Please advise .. thanks :)

Usually you want to stick to the main manufacturer's driver.

Nvidia's reference drivers will (generally) be more up to date and include more advanced features.

ms offers tested and proven drivers, they are the safest to use with working with windows, however they are usually older and provide less features. great for workstations.

Aren't the drivers M$ offers thru update just an older version (usally) of the Nvidia drivers? I would stick w/ drivers from Nvidia as the ones from MSI are probably also just some older tweaked version of Nvidia drivers as well ...

searching around and checking some benchmarks might be a good idea to choose exactly what version of drivers also :)

Edit: I think if I remember correctly MSI sends you to Nvidia site for drivers :p

Nvidia, nvidia, nvidia...you could also look to some websites for Omegas and I can't remember the last ones I heard of...I always keep updated unless one install goes bad I just roll back to the previous ones

Omega has fell behing on his drivers "again". at the mo people using hacked drivers are using starstorm 53.03, theres 2 revisions out, extra quality, (i recommend) and the benchmark version, (low quality for good 3d marks (screw that)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
