Hi! I'm sure you guys know of those Forceware drivers. Anyway, is it a good idea to upgrade to version 163.75 (released this November 6, 2007)? I haven't heard reviews yet

My current version is a 94.24 and was way back in June 2007.

I know the norm is supposed to be that upgrades are good but there are times when they aren't and can actually cause stability problems.

My OS is a Windows XP 32 bit and video card is a 7300GT

So what do you guys think?

My feelings are if you're happy with the performance and you're not having problems, why bother. Especially with video drivers. They can be a pain. If it ain't broke, don't "fix" it

I beleive most of the latest updates to the video drivers are aimed towards Vista, you should be ok with your current drivers.
