I build a PC myself some weeks ago. After installed Win 10 I want to upgrade the graphics driver (HD Graphics 4600) to the latest version. I go to the motherboard manufacturer website (Gigabyte) and Intel website, they both have graphics driver for me to download. Where should I download the driver, Intel or Gigabyte?

CPU: Intel i7-8700K 5.3 GHz ------ RAM: 32GB TridentZ 3600 MHz CL16 ----- Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus X Formula ----- GPU: Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Amp! Extreme ----- Storage: Samsung 960 Pro 1TB -- Samsung 850 Pro 2TB x4

Theoretically Gigabyte have tested (& possibly modified) the drivers they provide to ensure that they work with their motherboard.


Intel provided generic drivers could well be a later version & will probably work OK your motherboard. 


So unless you have a problem with the Gigabyte provided drivers I would use them
