Default GeForce3 Ti500 and Linux drivers. What I must choose?

Hello,
I've got a GeForce 3 Ti500 using Fedora Core 3.

I have a question.
It's good that I update to new driver every times is available?

Is good or not upgrading to a new driver with an old video card?

Use common sense.
If the new driver has a feature you need or better performance use it.
For instance I am still using 6629 because it has better performance than newer drivers. and the newer drivers have no added feature that I personally have a use for.
