ATI video drivers

i built a computer a few years ago and i have an ati all in wonder 9600 video card.
recently i reinstalled windows and everything else onto the computer.

if i go to windows update there are 2 updates there that say they have to do with my video card. one is a high priority and one is an optional hardware update.

once ive downloaded and installed either one or both of these updates, the benchmark program 3d mark wont run anymore, and there is a question mark listed in my device manager for an unknown device, which it says is located on the 9600 video card. i cant seem to get windows to figure out what this device is, or install any drivers for it.

if i reinstall the video drivers that came on the cd i got in 2003, the little question mark is gone from the device manager, and 3d mark will run just fine.

is there any way to update my video drivers without messing up the system? is there even any reason to worry about it? should i just use the ones that are on the cd and not update them at all?

thanks for any advice you might have

I would go to the source for drivers. ATI/AMD.
If you need performance tweaked drivers check out the Omega Drivers
