    Hi I've just bought an older 2012 model Macbook Pro with integrated graphics as well as a dedicated NVIDIA card. I've loaded up Windows 7 via bootcamp and everything is running fine however several programs I have recommend a driver update with a message such as:

    "[GPUIssuesCheck] Installed driver for graphics adapter 'NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M' is outdated.

    You should update them for a better experience (http://www.geforce.com/drivers).

    The currently installed version is 9.18.13.3228.

    The recommended minimum version is 9.18.13.4448 (344.48 WHQL)."

    Now I am a little wary to simply just go to NVIDIA and upgrade these drivers as I'm not sure if the system will take well to them or not or if I need to update specific bootcamp compatible ones somehow instead, or indeed if updating these from the basic ones I have as default is even possible.

    I know with my Mac Pro which has the AMD dual cards I can use at least some of the regular drivers and got better results with games than the drivers recommended for bootcamp so I was wondering if anyone has experience / knows what is best to update to for my Mac Book Pro with the NVIDIA card that will work?
