    So far is has not mattered but I am wondering now whether people running bootcamp do get the latest video drivers and install them or just stick with whatever Apple supplied when you setup bootcamp. I don't want to screw anything up but on the other hand some games might need fixes in newer drivers, you know?

    So, do you guys go ahead and install updated drivers?

    I always install the latest drivers, the apple ones are dire and old, you should see a large performance increase in most demanding games if you update to the latest version.

    Always, and I always uninstall the existing driver before putting in a new too.

    Download 304.79 Drivers and the modied inf file.
    Replace the inf file with the old one in the display driver folder.
    Then click on setup and enjoy installation. (Be sure to click on advance when installing and click on clean install.)
