Well, proper case is always best as it makes for easier reading and instills confidence that the writer has more than a couple marbles up there. Still, all lowercase is much better than all uppercase, which is harder to read, and is considered rude - shouting.

As to your driver question, note there could be more than one model of your notebook and also note the chipset for these include some graphics routines, as well as the graphics solution itself. And it looks like one of the drivers is for the chipset and the other is for the graphics.

I would advise against updating drivers unless you are having problems the driver may fix. And I note on that page there is a Check Now button to scan your system to determine what you need.
