Should I let my win7 update my vidcard drivers? It says that it is a pre release WDDM 1.0 whatever that means

I have had better luck installing the 182.08 x64 vista drivers. They install just fine in windows 7 and work better in games. I wouldn't let windows update manage the driver install.

The drivers are likely the 181.71 drivers that were just released. Again, the 182.08 drivers have still worked better in games for me. I have not been able to tell a difference between wddm 1.0 (182.08) and wddm 1.1 (181.71).
