  • Video Card Drivers

    I have a nVidia GeForce 4 Ti 4200 64 MB card released by MadDog Multimedia. Right now, I'm using MadDog's drivers. Windows Update now has a new driver for nearly all of the nVidia cards. What would be the best choice - stay with the driver by MadDog (the actual manufacturer), or upgrade to the latest driver by nVidia?

      I agree, use the latest STABLE drivers for your card, made by nVidia - and update according to their readme instructions

        Ok, so even though it's by MadDog Multimedia, I should use nVidia's drivers. Yes? (Just trying to get an absolute final answer before I f00k things up).

          As long as the nVidia hardware is on that companies card, it shouldn't matter.

          nVidia has great uninstall features.

            Alright.. Navigating nVidia's drivers site is confusing... These would be them, right? : http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=winxp-2k_44.03

              Yes.

              Even if you do break something, Windows XP has a driver rollback feature (which actually has saved me once).
