NVidia drivers

could be the most noob question of all but this is the first desktop ive owned since ages ...

 

So when a new geforce driver comes out , should i download it or should i go to the card's manufacturer support page and get it from there ?

 

In my case it's gtx 750 Ti from MSI , but the drivers at  msi are way older than the ones on Nvidia .

These days nvid has a program called nvidia experience, this program can update your drivers to the latest version amnd tweak your ingame settings

exactly ... but its going to download it from Nvidia not the oem , wich i'm doubting is good since non stock versions of theses cards overclock automatically , idk if these drivers should behave right

I'm letting it to download automatically, didn't know about this lol. No problems yet, but I was honestly expecting more FPS in all games for a lappy with 32 GB RAM, i7 and gt 740m. (for example i cant seem to have more than 120 FPS on average in cs go after letting Nvidia "optimize" it for me). Maybe this is the reason?

u shouldnt wory when it comes to laptops ,  but on desktops it overclocks to keep a steady 30 fps min and that is supposed to be driver's job , but there are so many manufacturers each so different . For example the evga FTW edition of my card is like 25% bettter than the stock one lol .

No the factory over clocks the card by firmware on the card. Nvid doesn't change the firmware on the card.. :)

If you have a heat issue, I recommend EVGA Precision X 16 (or whatever number) to adjust performance to your liking. else if you want a more technical standpoint use NVIDIA Inspector. (Unchecked in other words before I installed it, my temperature target by default was set to 90 Degrees C (194 F) and that was gonna kill my lifespan of my GPU (780M, yes it's a laptop version but still works) Now I can prioritize Temperature limits over clock limits. While gaming or using the GPU strenuously, I don't need to think about the temperature of my GPU. =) (CPU however is a different story).

Drivers and Firmware are diffrent things :D

 

Normaly the manufactor driver wont update the firmware on your graphic card. 

 

Use the Nvidia Drivers. Firmware updates for GPUs are rare and in my opinion trash.
