Default MDK 9.0 PowerPack .. do I need this?

Hi everyone,
I just successfully installed Mdk 9.0 PowerPack and was wondering if I require the 4191 3D NVIDIA driver(s)? I installed the 4.x driver during the X configuration portion of the instal. All seems to behave quite nicely (can play Tux and open the "gear" program).
I have tried installing the NVIDIA drivers just as an exercise (in futility), using first the RPM and finally the RPMS route without success (black screen when attempting to call 'startx" from root console. Followed the instructions in both cases to the tee.
So my question is two-fold.
Do I need these drivers (are they a newer build, or improved)?
If so, what am I doing wrong? I have not as yet tried installing from the tar source.

Cheers-
