Default Is there any need to install nvidia motherboard drives on a vista system?

I have an evga 680i sli (not that the motherboard matters for these questions other than the fact that it's an nvidia mobo) and use vista 32 ultimate.

I never installed any of the nforce mobo drivers. I assumed that the drivers built into vista are fine. Am i wrong on this?

Also even without having nforce drivers installed windows udpate shows an nvidia sata driver optional update. Is there any need to install this one?

thanks.

They are mini drivers in Vista. For full functionality you will need to install all of the full drivers for all of your hardware or no soup for you!

I never did on my board either and everything seems fine so not sure if I should or not. I'm not even sure my board has vista drivers.
