    To update the driver in bootcamp, you simply download the latest mobile Nvidia driver ans install it. Effect? It could give you slightly improved gaming performance, besides, certain games require certain minimal driver version. On the OS X, the drivers are updated automatically with an OS update.

    I have no idea what you just said. And it is difficult to say whether you will have problems with new drivers or not. The golden rule is still: if it works well, don't touch it.

    Not with software updates or drivers. Drivers often unlock performance from your card, either in general or in specific applications. Software updates are usually security or compatibility/bug related.

    Wow, that's old. Yes, update. And make sure you click "Perform a Clean Installation" during the update.

    There's a checkbox that says "Perform a Clean Installation" when you run the driver utility. I can't get any clearer than that.
