    No, unless you maybe need it for some application, that may take advantage of it?
    Is that the case?

    CUDA is a driver framework that allows users to utilize the graphic chips on some NVIDIA chips to perform computing tasks.
    If you don't plan to take advantage of these capabilities, you won't need CUDA drivers. (Since you are asking this question, I don't think you will :p)
