I'm quite noobie when it comes to computers. I do know the importance in having the latest drivers for things like video-card, sound-card, chipset etc. What I dont know is how to be sure you got the latest driver out there? I got a Nvidia Geforce 7800GTX, when I search for a new driver on Nvidia.com, all I find is a driver from october 2005, or something. If I do a google-search, I find 5day old drivers, but they are MSI Geforce 7800GTX??? Should I go for them or original Nvidia-divers? It's the same for other components, cause I dont understand which to choose.
Also, there are newer drivers for the geforce7800GS on nvidia. In the text this driver supports the 7800GTX as well???

I'm confused, sorry. Is there a program or the like, I can use to check for updates of the drivers? Tips would be appreciated.

If you go on the website for nvidia and go to driver downloads and just select the appropriate options from the menu it fins the drivers you need.

Thx for reply! But are there any programs(e.g diagnostics) that can find the name and version of all the drivers one have installed at any given time on ones computer?

Syspec is used for hardware, but if you google it I'm sure you can find something.

Go to www.lavalys.com and download Everest it tells you what components you have and finds drivers automatically.
